Depends on the size of the case you intend on lighting and how much ambient light is in the room. For most applications a pair of 30cm (12") CCFLs is enough. Most modding stores including Performance-PCs and Petra's Tech Shop carry them.

Hi.

I have had excellent results from Logisys CCFL's.

The same type is also available in 4" should you have some space or length issues insofar as mounting, or should you wish to confine your lighting to a more specific area of the case.

They are bright, and the inverters are small enough to get tucked away out of sight should you choose.

There are also UV CCFL kits
