Thanks,

650D is the topic thumb.gif
this is using blue bitfenix spectre pro fans and a flexible led strip made by xebec, it was 500mm but you can cut them to any length you want, i'm only using 3/4 of this one and it is super bright. they are self adhesive too.

450
edit.sorry 2nd pic is old, i'm sure someone will notice thats a CM megaflow not a spectre pro. it has been changed since.

yeah this is what I was mentioning earlier lol biggrin.gif

I was talking about using the BitFenix LED strips but those Xebec strips are basically the same thing. Antec does a similar thing with their accent lighting kits as well. thumb.gif thumbs up for posting a personal pic about them though wink.gif

yeah pretty much the same, the bitfenix ones look good, looks like they come in shorter lengths but with the same amount of leds, so they are closer together.

Fan wise, I'd go for the Bitfenix Spectre Pros too (I have them as well biggrin.gif), no doubt about that in my mind. As for further lighting, you can either get some blue Cold Cathothode tubes (impractical) or the bitfenix Alchemy LED strips. Just make sure to attach them on a place where you can see the light but not the actual LED strip.

This is a good point, and the reason mine are mounted on a piece of small angle just inside the side panel, so they shine inwards without being attached to the side panel. Didn't like the way they looked anywhere else.

Be sure to post some pics! Was thinking of getting some red LED's myself.

As for the fans, I have some red LED's Spectre Pros as well. 200mm intake and 120mm exhaust.

Of course smile.gif. But I'm currently waiting for my replacement PSU, its the last part I need and, lucky me, it was DOA, failed the paperclip test and everything.

Emperor

Edit: Pics maybe around the end of this month or early June btw.
Edit2: How it looks at the moment:
448

Sorry for the crappy quality, I might have moved a slight bit when taking the photo. And this is the only one I have at the moment since I'm not home right now. And of course, the PSU isn't even here yet. tongue.gif That should arrive at Corsair next Tuesday.
