Default Suggestions for fans/color scheme

Alright, so soon I'm going to be ordering some stuff. A new 120mm fan in the back, which I want to have LEDs, some UV reactive wrap for the wires, and maybe a cold cathode? Oh, and an expansion slot exhaust fan. I was thinking about a mixed green/blue color scheme? Too many people have just blue, so I'm thinking it wouldn't hurt or look bad to have both. Suggestions?

Now first of all, if I get something like this: http://www.xoxide.com/wiresleeves.html or http://www.xoxide.com/wireloom.html , that requires me to take off the connectors correct? I think so, so I'm going with these: http://www.frozencpu.com/scan/se=Cab...nu_search.html

Second, a cold cathode light, is what puts out the UV right? If so, I'll get one or two of those. The rear fan, don't know if I'm going to go green or blue. Also, should I just get an LED fan, or another UV cold cathode like this: http://www.xoxide.com/120mm-cold-cat...n-uvblue1.html ? I have never messed with lighting so I wouldn't know if a cold cathode or two at the bottom would do it..

Oh, and I think I'm getting a new UV reactive Sata cable, and my DFI cables are UV Reactive

Comments? Suggestions?

A cold cathode does produce light, yes.
As for between another LED fan, and a cathode.. well, depends on whats more important to you.. lighting or cooling.

Cathodes are very bright, and you'll discover that.

As for managing the lights, go with http://www.frozencpu.com/scan/se=Cab...nu_search.html

All done.. hope that helps make your choice.

A cold cathode is the source of UV, right?

This cathode:
http://xoxide.com/logisys-15in-ccfl-blue.html
has sound reaction so while you play your music through your speakers, it'll react to bass. I've seen it in action.. its niceee.

This set of cathodes is just really nice for the price:
http://xoxide.com/bluecathode.html

Check them all out:

And this fan is sexy:
