I was wondering thou, you said that you sleeved the cathodes. What did you use to sleeve them?

And following your advice i only started cutting after the plug-in feet.
I also left the 2 middel supports in tact in hope of keeping stability.

And it seems to be working pretty well Its not bending terribly when i pull it off.

I will still smoothen them out when I get the right equipment.

I will definatly post my pics
Great job man! I really like how you left those middle supports like that. Mine does bend in the middle if you push on it. I thought about trying that, but opted not to in hopes of letting the most amount of light through as possible. Turns out it was plenty bright enough and more so than I anticipated.

The sleeving I used is TechFlex power blends "Ogre" color. I got it from performance-pcs. I definitely like the mod better with those bulbs sleeved. Otherwise it was just way too bright. Now it's the perfect amount of glow, plus I can still switch it off easily underneath if it bothers me at any time.

I don't know if you saw on another post where I mentioned that you may need to drill a tiny hole into the plastic of that side vent to allow that tiny bit of extra length of the bulb to slide into and fit better. I did have to do that on one side so the bulb would fit in just right, although I think I went ahead and drilled that tiny hold on both sides. Let me know if you have any issues with fitment and I'll help you out.

Oh, and don't forget to post pictures! What color are you using?

hey paraleyes, I have a mod idea that I've wanted to do since before I even got the case. There's two different ways I was thinking about approaching it. First, the concept: To have light flood out of the vents on each of the panels. My first idea for how to implement this is to make some sort of casing around vents on the inside and put two 4" cathodes between the casing and the panel (since I'm gonna be UV on my case soon I don't want the light to flood the UV light). The other idea was to rig a string of LED's and put two super bright LED's per vent (10 per side panel). Which do you think would be better?

I'd do it with cold cathodes and box it in with some sheet metal to keep the light from flooding the rest of the case. It would be substantially cheeper than trying to do something with LED's -that is unless you are really good with electronics and such. Otherwise, if price was not an issue, I would do it with some LED strips such as those RAM lighting kits. Putting 2 or three on each panel would provide a pretty cool effect shining through the panel.

I have been wanting to buy a couple of those and put them inside my DVD-Rom drives. I'm not really happy with how much light a single 8mm blue LED inside each one performs. It looks great when the room is dark, but when lights are on, you can't really even notice the mod. Those RAM LED kits I think would be perfect for a lot of mods. I don't see why they are $15 each though.

What about good old neon string for that job? Last time I used it was to "UFO" a case; a popular mod some years ago.

Money is an issue so over the christmas break when I'm back home, I'll probably be able to do the mod (hopefully money permits lol)
