post #8102 of 18196
I thought about lighting my case out a little more but i can't decide between cold cathodes or LED's,
I think i would go for cold cathodes because they are really bright, but i'm not sure how i should install them. I thought about taping them around the side windows, so you can't see them directly.

So, does anyone have experience with cathodes? (i think I would go for Sharkoon CCFL)

I would go for led,They are just as bright as a ccfl in my opinion, I have mine wired into the fan controller so I can dim them a little if need be. If you have a look at my build on page 795 you will see what I mean. The led strips light up my room bright red, it looks like the red light district at night lol.

Check out Darkcyde's build on the OP for great CCFL mounting locations.

Really depends on what you want in a fan controller. Scythe makes good controllers, as does Sunbeam and even some of Aerocool's newer fan controllers are pretty good. NZXT makes some decent controllers (like this one http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1725649&CatId=501 ) but watch out for their fancy ones with colour LCD displays, they have gotten a lot of complaints, and Lamptron makes some excellent fan controllers. Zalman makes some pretty good ones as well (I have tried two of theirs, and they both did the job with no complaints).

If you decide on a flashy fan controller with a fancy display, make sure it has adequate watts per channel for the fans you are planning on using. Generally speaking, the flashier the display on the controller, the less watts per channel it has.

I have this one installed on my system:

http://www.lelong.com.my/aerocool-strike-x-touch-fan-controller-front-panel-chocobozz-I1126449-2007-01-Sale-I.htm

It's touch screen, and it looks freaking sweet with an animated display, but the build quality isn't very good and it has a low watts per channel rating. I wouldn't recommend it unless you're OK with fixing a few problems right out of the box.

No offense, but personally I prefer a fan controller that lets you see all the fans at a glance of the display without having to click or press buttons to see how the fans are running. That controller will only display one set of fan data at a time.

It does look pretty sweet though.

Thanks for the advice guys, yeah I'm not looking for a flashy controller nor touch screen. My buddy install the NZXT Sentry 2 and it stop working after a few month. I'm really looking in to the Lamptron FC5v2 because look nice and I've look around and people give it good reviews.

Heard any thing good about the Lamptron FC5v2 ?
post #8110 of 18196
I've got the Lamptron FC5V2 installed and it is freaking awesome! biggrin.gif I totally recomment it! wink.gif
You can run easily 4 fans or more on one channel and you can turn every channel off so you can for example switch the lights off and you can choose the colour of your display or turn it off completely wink.gif
BUY THAT ONE! biggrin.gif
sorry for my bad english BTW wink.gif
