What do you use to light up your case?
Neons or Cold Cathode tubes?

Neon for the case & electroluminescent "wire" for the fun of it.
Got mine here:

I like the cathode for brightness, and no heat---havnt used glow wire yet, I tried some light "tape" that works real well, is cool, easy to use (has a sticky back) very flexible and as bright as the cathode although not cheap...

I just use a flashlight when I need to get in there and dig around... LOL
Seriously, I haven't tried lighting the inside of the case. How do you get power? does it connect to the 4 prong outputs, or do you have to do something different?drojman

Anything made for a PC (be it a car neon tube with a modification or a cold cathode made specifically for a PC) comes with a 4-pin molex connector and a switch of some sort. Of course, having a window on your tower is a bonus when using a light so you can see the components inside, and so there is a reason for buying a $40 light.

I've seen pictures of some really cool cases as well. Sounds fun too. Perhaps I will have to try it...drojman

I use 2 cathodes in my system... wasn't very happy with the kits... the lights seem to be very dim.... also have a window on the side and top....

I'm using LED's... seem to use very little power, and boy are they cheap, well, for some colors... one blue will cost you $5.00... Ick... I'm using reds in a box that's painted black and red. Peacekeeper colors! Sebaceans rule! Scarrans drool!John Hancock... :)
