Would this be a good idea as a temporary faster OS drive until this Thai Hard Drive disaster/debacle is sorted out?

I wouldn't, I had the 2 meter NZXT leds and they didn't last 6 months before burning out. It acted like the way they have them wired, if one goes bad they all go out. But there are other led's out there that may not burn out as fast. I do like the red from led's more that the CCFL's, it is a much darker red than the CCFL's.
Thanks for the kind words guys!

Well i might need to buy some more lighting for my case because i managed to snap one of my cathodes so i only have one. So i may look into that after i have earned some money! I have just spent £130 on the motherboard and I'm in the notion of buying £65 worth of cable sleeving. So within a week you should see some pictures of my first evar sleeving job!!!

I have made a clear side panel for my storm scout and i'm now thinking about how to light up the inside...I have 2 x 15cm blue cathods but they are quite dull.

Thinking of buying 2 x 30cm cathods...but where is the best place to mount them so they are hidden in the storm scout? there isnt much room.

Has anyone mounted them on the back of the side window before???

Hi everyone. Just poppin in to say I've been reading the thread and you folks are all awesome as usual. Yep, work is keeping me very busy as we're heading in to the final stretch trying to get all projects done before snow fly. I'll jump on this evening for awhile to catch up on some kudos and some talk about some new toys I've picked up.

Until then,

I have been thinking of mounting my 2 red 30cm cathodes on the side panel on the top and down the left hand side. The only problem is the wires when you take the side panel off. So I have had an idea, when you take the side panel off there is come kind of metal to metal contact so you don't have to worry about disconnecting any wires when you take the side off. I haven't done anything yet but it is just an idea.

If you find anything post it up as i WILL be interested

Ah, nice too hear from your Rockr. Looking forward to the catch up later on .

On another note, 200 peices of Pre-cut heatshrink, 20m of titanium gray sleeve and 20m of combat green sleeve ordered for £50.
So look forward to some pics of a sleeved combat style scout!

i was thinking of mounting 1 on top or bottom and 1 down the side too. I was just going to pull a molex connector though the bottom of the HHD Cage and plug it in along the bottom of the side panel so its all hidden when its back together. The wires should reach ok?

Might buy a cathode kit tonight and give it a go.

Well let me know how you get on, sounds like a good plan.
I got my cathodes from here on eBay. He is a really nice bloke. He does replacement cathodes aswell as full kits.LINK

My inverter just fits on the back of the drive bays and then i extended the wires using a chocolate block and some wire for both cathodes to reach the other sides of the case without having to buy a stupid 30cm extension.

Might as well get an SSD, it may be a little more, but it would be faster, cooler, quieter, and you could still use it after the hard drive situation gets worked out
