yeah, I think he's talking about the box you connect the two cathodes and power/switch into.

I just stuck mine behind the mobo and inbetween the HDD racks. Then again, I have an odd case.

I have found room near the front of the case or on side of a hdd rack more on the right side. (If you are looking at the case from the front)
