Just recently finished the watercooling loop for my secondary system in the new Define S2. The lighting's not great and they are just phone pics, but in terms of the build I'm fairly pleased with the way it came out, just having trouble figuring out where to put UV strips to make the coolant glow. I've put one in the front and one sort of behind the reservoir, but I really need to get some light on the front or top of the tubes to get them to light up nicely. I just can't find anywhere that won't look awful (e.g. sticking it to the fan shrouds or something tacky like that). If anyone has any ideas on where to position some more UV strips where they won't be in line of sight with the PC on my desk (which rules out the rear panel of the case) please let me know. Also the desk in the pics is not my computer desk it's a work bench haha.

Very nice.

But that's just way too much RGB for my tastes. I halfway expected a mirror ball to drop out of an automated compartment in the center of your Radiator.

Don't get me wrong I like lighting but am more of a fan of understated than *ibang!* punch you in the face with a billion rays of RGB. Fans aren't one of those things I have a need to stand out in my system unless I paint them.

I really like this build. You could put RGB in the front but with the PSU cover in the bottom you're sort of limited as to where. I see only 3 options.

1st is a strip of LEDs right in front of the Radiator in the top. That would give some clarity. But may reflect off the Radiator. Same as...

2nd to the front panel

Or thirdly both. But again may reflect off the radiators.

You may think about grabbing up some RGB blocks or Reservoir.

Thanks man!

They are UV strips though, not RGB. For this build I was trying not to add too much RGB

It's all good, I ended up figuring it out. I kept that strip in the front, removed the one behind the reservoir because it kept falling off anyway and I trimmed three pieces of UV strip with 3x LEDs on each and fitted them to center of each fan in the top. That was the best spot I could find where the UV light hits all the tubes and you can't really see them unless you stick your head underneath, and the wires I used are really slim and tied to the fan wires so you don't really notice them unless you look closely. I might take another photo tonight with the other lighting in the case turned off so you can just see the tubes glow.

Thank you, maybe it's not totally appreciate in video but in real life the effect is really good. It's not too much in my opinion anyway the good thing about RGB is that you can disable the ones you don't want or customize at a maniacal level of detail!
