Cold Cathode...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I have got a sunbeam tech station UV blue and I was wondering should I buy a regular cold cathode or a UV one to light the case up? I fear UV cold cathode will shine pink/purple-ish :S
Thank you

Cheap 12v LED strips off ebay.
But UV will look pink/purple-ish.

If you want it to just glow, get a set of UV cathodes.

Hm I guess I'll buy regular cold cathodes then, I don't like how LEDs look.
Thank you very much

Just take your time and route the cables nicely, and hide the box. Cathodes look awesome unless you see a bunch wires all over
