Default which color?

should i go with for the lights in the case?
Its either blue or green, green seems to be less popular and cost more.

i was originally gonna go green since ive been with blue with my last few cases, and i wanted a change, but it seems like blue will be easier and cheaper to achieve in making it look cool.

Green it is.

Imagine if somebody invented a Black light, not those that reflect things, but like make things go really black. But i guess thats kind of considered as being invisible since theres no light going on.

Default Re: which color?

im going to be using the XION Solaris that i am borrowing from a friend since i sold my CM 690 Case.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811208011
it pretty much glows green already.

I am going to get a new case when i see a good deal on a case for like maybe $60 on newegg or microcenter that doesnt do MIR to be that cheap.
its kind of hard finding a nice case that has a transparent side panel that looks nice and its cheap.
though the Solaris looks pretty good.

i know, i think you told me when i posted a picture of my computer here.
i was getting bored of the case, and i wanted a transparent side panel, and didnt want to fork out $40 to get the panel, since thats how much i paid for.
its a great case, and having 7 120mm fans.... it was sweet, though it was pretty loud.

You seem to have already decided but I got to go with blue for this one. In my experience (mostly with car stereo head-units) green can seem really bright at times. Blue is much more subdued

Default Re: which color?

what is this?
and how do i make it emit light?
http://microcenter.com/single_produc...uct_id=0253428
im not really good with these types of things, maybe because i never learned how to use one, unless its sticking one into a potato.... right?

can i attach these to a case fan somehow and have them turn on when i turn my computer on?
any guide on how to do it?
