Lighting up Case

Hey guys, been looking on forums for some time now!
Love what I see and enjoy reading and looking at the wicked images!

Thought I'd ask a couple things....

Can anyone recommend any case lighting?
I've been doing a fair amount of searching and only saw the NZXT Light Sleeved kits (RED) which I think may work for my rig

Own a White Corsair 600T with ASUS ROG IV Extreme-Z MB,
So I'm thinking the red Accent will be supported nicely?

Thanks!
Chris!

You may find that red led's will lose the red accents on your board if you want them to pop you will be better off using white led lighting instead and Tom will tell you the same thing

I was given the same advice as this ^ and it seems logical from what I've seen of these red-accented red-lit rigs. It turns out a bit murky really.

Depends really, as much as I like white led's, I use blue led's in my own rig as white makes it look way too blunt for my taste, it depends how much red you have in your rig.

And how bright the lights are.

I agree with these guys though, the rest of your PC hardware will most likely be black (PCB of the mainboard and such) and when black it lit up with white, it stays black. Coloured accents will appear brighter with white light on them.

When you use coloured lights, /everything/ will reflect that colour. Even the darker parts and in most cases you'll just end up with a huge red blur.

Thanks for the advice guys, much appreciated!
I guess the colour is decided now, but are there any decent lighting kits?

The only one I come across is the Nzxt one or the Phobya LED-Flexlight kits.

Cheers,
Chris

You could always make your own strips up with colour changers & brightness controls I'm just waiting for a kit coming.
