Just a heads up for folks wanting LED lighting in their cases. Just bought These LED's
Soldered an old fan lead to a length of this stuff, and plugged it in to my fan controller as a dimmer, and it works awesome. CCFL ain't got nothing
on these bad boys, and no need for an inverter- it works with your 12v rail. Clutter free lighting. Bought 16 foot for $14 shipped to my door. Cheap. 3M adhesive backing, and a low profile. I am really glad I didn't buy from a "pc specialty shop" as their prices were crazy compared to this deal. Granted, I had to do some work, but it's worth it. If anyone has any questions, I would be happy to answer them for ya. HitLights
Edit: Oh yeah, it's worth mentioning. The RED is actually RED, not the washed out Pink/Orange that CCFL's are. AND BRIGHT. Like looking at a welding arc.
Added a small project that turned out well:
I traded red for white. Here is the update:
Yet another leftover LED project in the works.

And this is really all you can see of the 2nd leg, which goes all the way around the perimeter of the inside:
I will post some of it lit up later today.
I was bored at work tonight so I made a "proof of concept" for a future project. The LED's are only running off of a 9 volt battery at the moment and lit from the bottom. I think it will look better running 12 volts and surrounded.
All lit up.
Made a bigger Fractal sign for my stand. The red that comes through is just red plastic that catches the light.
