I bought dual green 12" cold cathodes from xoxide, they work great and have a handy switch which you can turn them off from the outside of the case <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

They come with double side sticky pads, so very easy to mount<img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

the cheapo logysis ones work just fine for me. they arent as bright as some of the more expensive ones.....but then again, I dont want accent lighting to be very bright anyway.

I have a UV Logisys and it works pretty well, not that bright but it was cheap.<br />

Sound reactive too, useless IMO since it just works by having a microphone in the inverter.

Get the logisys from xoxide. They're cheap and very bright compared to other brands I've seen. Also been running over a year so that helps too... <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /><br />

LOGISYS or the Tt ones work great!<br />
<br />
If you mount one High and one Low near the side window you get a nice glow. Here's the LOGISYS Blues on my computer:<br />

so yeah basically the lights came today and i installed them, only the problem was one wouldnt light up <img src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" /> i juiigled the cable and it worked, but it would go right back to only lighting up half way. i couldnt fix it so i ordered another cathode, lol. <br />
<br />
so what i want to know is for all those ppl who are using dual cold cathodes, where are you putting your little box that the cathodes plug into. i cant find a good spot to put it <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick out tounge caps" class="inlineimg" />

I just taped mine down to the bottom of the case near the back <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /> I suck at wire management tho. Oh, and you should return those lights. Not buy another set.

I put my little box thingy <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /> on the drivebay where my hard drive is, it hides behind the non-window part of my case, and so do the wires, so it's all good <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

nice. well what i decided to do was in my case (raidmax sagitta) there is a little plastic thing they added on to help hold pci cards without screws. it is an ingenious design, but i hate it! lol, it takes up so much space<br />
<br />
so i just unscrewed it and put the box where the pci thing was, lol. my box is in the back of my case rather than the front which is where i assume is where you put yours?

I see you live in Ohio. If you have a micro center near by, they might have some Ultra brand 12" CCFL's. They are priced at $17.99, but ring up as $9.99.
