    Yeah, it would look better with things that are brought out by the UV light. I think I may go with blue since I hear it does a good job of lighting up the case, plus my carpet and case are blue I was thinking purple, but it may look too pinkish for my taste. Any thoughts on the purple cathodes?

    I ordered the blue cathode and a nice fan with blue lights for $6 This should be it for my mods and computer parts. I'll show ya a pic of the finished product. Now I need to make my wires all nice and neat.

    Lots of zip ties and plastic wire loom covering for the wires....

    I just picked up a green cold cathode for my Blue case. I'll let you know how it works....
