Suggest me a lighting colour scheme

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Kinda self-explanatory really, I used to have an LED-lit HSF so I could never do too much with my lighting unless I mixed colours, but now I've rebuilt the system I'm looking to put some subtle lighting in it (emphasis on subtle, nothing too 'in your face'). Already got two UV cold cathodes in it, but they can be turned off with a switch, so they don't have to be incorporated into the lighting. Here's a shot of my case as it is at the moment: http://images.simonweald.com/cables.jpg

The bottom two SATA leads and the IDE lead are UV reactive, hence the colour. Also, the SATA lead has a blue-lit wire that spirals up the cable, but that can easily be disconnected.

Cheers in advance.

I have UV Green cables and sleeving all throughout my case. 4 x UV Cold Cathodes that are constant on, 2 x Green Cold Cathodes connected to a sound inverter, and all the fans are UV Blue reactive and have either blue LED's or UV LED's in them.

I say go with something like that or better yet UV Yellow. I've always wanted to use that but could never find all the cables in yellow but found a UV Yellow sleeving kit to sleeve all the cables in yellow.

I've got 2x 4' UV cathodes, and 2x120 Green LED fans. I like to think the mix of colours is quite nice. Also with the window in my case, anything white that goes under the desk (ie: my socks) glow white. It's kinda cool.

Ends up as a bluey purply glow toward the front, and a deeper green toward the back. i like it.

Cheers guys! I'm thinking green, but on a separate switch to the UV cold cathodes, then I can have either, or a mixture!

Good plan.

My advice is just to stay away from blue. Everyone has blue.
