High quality lighting??

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Is there ANYONE other than Logysis that makes case lighting??????

I must be on my 6th or 7th frickin logysis lighting package. They are amazingly low quality and seem to break, burn out, or whatever on a near constant basis.

I just want 1 blue cathode or equivalent to light up my TJ 07. Nothing super fancy. I have a rocker switch that I'd like to be able to incorporate into the lighting. Had to do some custom wiring for the logysis kit but it was doable.

Thanks!

FrozenCPU sells cold cathode tubes made by Mod/Smart and although I've only used them once...they worked very well. I used them in a customer's build and he's had no complaints. I used two of the blue ones and they provided a lot of light and nice deep blue color.

I'd go with LEDs over Cold Cathode. Cathodes usually have a pretty short life, and most are made pretty terribly. NZXT has a nice sleeved LED kit, as well, you could always buy SuperFlux LED's, which are very small in form factor but produce a LOT of light.

I can personally vouch for the NZXT kit. I stuck a white and blue 2m kit in my rig last friday. Funny I should come across this thread as I was just about to post a new thread with the photos I took from the build.

Check back in about 5 minutes to see the new thread.

EDIT: The thread is up: http://www.overclock.net/case-mods-g...g-job-haf.html

Achieved with a set of 2m blue led's and a set of 2m white led's.

Haha! I thought this thread said, "High quality lightning??".

Anyway, are you using this? I just bought that from Logisys and it works and looks great!

CCFL's are hardly high quality. They produce a lot of light and that's about it. LED's, especially Superflux are far better in light balance, quality of light and energy use.
