1.)victor if you get a chance pl look check out the link and tell me what I need

I though a normal blue cold cathode was brighter then a UV cold cathode?
So if I wanted a very bright blue interior and a UV effect for my green tubes I better use a blue cold cathode instead of black UV colt cathodes + blue cold cathode?

Please just tell me what lights I need for the following two setups:
a.)Bright blue interior with green UV tubing
b.)bright blue interior with those light blue cyan kinda tubes like in the video above
and if possible please pick them from this link
http://www.aquatuning.at/index.php/language/en/cPath/51
and here the tubing http://www.aquatuning.at/index.php/c...mm--1-2--.html

2.)The Phobya G Changer is a great performing radiator and only max degree weaker then RX360 and Co ...and it is 40% cheaper so I say it is great

3.)What do you think would look better with those UV tubes? barbs or compression fittings?

this comes close http://www.aquatuning.at/product_inf...-Package-.html

i dont know if you can but try to find something close to this color: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/72...?tl=g30c99s172

it's more of what you're looking for...


http://www.aquatuning.us/product_inf...UV---30cm.html

try this for the lighting...as you can see it looks very blue in the picture, and it really is pretty blue like that...you can add a blue cathode, but a blue cathode alone will NOT make the UV tubing light up and look bright...in order for UV reactive things to give off the glow they need to absorb light at a specific wavelength and that wavelength is found right above the blue spectrum, which is why UV lights look bluish


as for green tubing (which out of whats available on the site you chose looks the best)
http://www.aquatuning.at/product_inf...ive-green.html



actually i just noticed something on the site,
http://www.aquatuning.at/product_inf...tive-blue.html

this is most likely the tubing the guy used in the video...primochill is a prime choice and it's colors are fantastic!

edit: go with barbs...looks cleaner...though compression fittings are more secure...


edit2: also, check this out

Thx for the effort

Look there are

a.)normal cold cathodes in all colors
b.)UV cold cathodes in all colors
c.)UV cold cathodes which have "UV" in the color description (this is UV black light ..I think^^)

You were saying before that the colored UV cold cathodes would shine brighter than the normal colored ones: "Blue UV cold cathode shine brighter than normal blue cold cathode"

If that was true then I wouldn´t need blue cold cathodes and an extra black UV light to get the blue interior and the green UV tubes to glow..get it?^^because I could use the UV blue cold cathodes for a blue interior and at the same time would they bring out the UV effect right?


And don´t you think the guy in the video used UV blue /clear tubing? seems a little lighter then the normal UV blue tubing doesn´t it?

If you look at the comments he said he used 3 logisys uv cathodes

So I'm guessing he bought 2sets blue 2sets uv and opted to leave out 1blue and 1uv since the inverter can handle 2 cathodes.

Probably all cathodes were of the brand logysis

it's just a more pale color and he has more ambient light from the fans and monitor and such...

oops i worded that funny, sorry....what i meant to say is blue cold cathodes are brighter than uv lights but uv is still plenty bright...i have 3 uv lights in my room which is 5 meters by 8 meters and it's plenty bright!!! like so bright that i don't need anything else to be able to see and read a book...and those are just bulbs not cathode...what i would do is get one uv blue cathode and place it up top and one on the bottom, but both close to the glass and they should shine on every part of the tubes to get the best look...they seem to be a good price on that site too if i'm converting euro to usd correctly >.>

and tubing? is that UV blue tubing? or UV transparent tubing?
or transparent tubing with UV dye? and if it is dye how can those looks be simulated the best with the above mentioned UV tubing solutions?

That is what I thought too..

If you have for example green UV tubes and want a blue interor ...the best way to go would be UV blue cathodes because you get 2 girls with one cup

But so many people told me that blue UV cathodes would impede the true UV green effect and that only normal UV (black light...kinda purple glowing) could bring out the UV Green effect and nothing else)..

I am kinda confused by all this UV stuff^^

lol, this kind of physics/ chemistry is really my specialty...if you want me to go into the science of it i will, but

for a more simplistic answer...UV light and the color of a UV cathode like UV blue cathode are two totally different things...blue is close to violet which is close to Ultra violet...so getting blue means you're likely to be showing signs of ultra violet and violet too which would allow the uv tubing to be the color it's meant to be, however the ambient lighting in the case would cause the tubing color to seem to fade out...

if you really really want the best option, paint the inside of your case a very light blue kind of color, like sky blue but lighter...and bright green tubing with straight uv cathode lights....the light blue will show to be very blue and reflect a very white/blue light which will light up your case...a lot!

Ok and if I don´t have the option of painting what would be the best way to have the UV green tubes effect used to its max and still have a bright and light blue interior like the guy in the vid?

well the uv cathodes will give a blue glow, but if it's not bright enough to your liking...you can get some paper, and find places in your comp where people won't see it...use some clear tape and tape it on...the white paper will reflect a bright blue glow...seriously ... <---not sarcasm!
