The HUE comes with 2 meters of RGB LED strip and they are BRIGHT. They are an 11 on your scale.

AWESOME! I've got 3 strips of blue LED's in my case rigt now, and while they're bright and pretty (they make the few red items in my case REALLY stick out it's not something I intended for THIS case, as they were originally purposed for my Sentey Abbadom II, and I'd like to stick with the black and red theme the Rosewill Thor V2 had initially but I want it bright enough where the internal components show well because I'm going to window mod my case.
I appreciate the info, and rating, and will definitely look more into getting the RGB Controller. How long have you had yours, and have you had any issues? As much as I love NZXT's items I know that fan controllers aren't their strongpoint and I'm hoping the light controller IS.

I have the one built into the Phantom 820. I know others who have the standalone version of the HUE and they are quite bright. There are other alternatives out there as well... the cheap Chinese made 5050 LED strips are a lot cheaper and quite good.

I've got a 1 meter strip of the Chinese ones under this PSU cover, pointed upward in two rows. The are more than bright enough to be seen through the acrylic under my shop lighting.

That's pretty cool looking, no pun intended. My question is how long is your PSU to need a cover that long?

EDIT: NVM I looked at your posts and I understand now.

I've got a few:

Single braids spliced into a non-modular PSU, also removed the leds; blew it up a month later jerry rigging up some lighting...



External PSU to fit a 6950 in my old HTPC chassis and black electrical tape deco front bezel around the LCD



That incarnation also had external F8's magnetically mounted on the rear; I don't even want to think of how many times I clipped my fingers in those...




This one is more recent: old 92mm fan resting next to CPU cooler and a cardboard "duct" in the front to divert air to my gpu

Don't have the pics to show it, but I once sat a 5GB hard drive right on top of my power supply in my first computer, a Packard Bell from '97. I bought it to add to the 1GB space of the original hard drive, but the case did not have two hard drive bays.

Second WoW rig from old parts. Home built PC lexan stand for Mobo

Notice the ultra high tech paint trim tape holding the GTX260 in a proper position on the motherboard!

G31md7 Biostar board 775 dual core 2.66 Intel
4 G RAM
W7 32bit
500g SATA WD
GTX260




I had to use another second old AT style power supply to power the GTX card. Not enough connectors and only 280w on the main PS.

That is quite possibly the most ghetto thing I have ever seen. +10 internets to you.
