Default Case modding

Ok, i have a dfi mobo (see sig) and it came with these ugly yellow cables and the ram slots are yellow as are some other slots...anyway my dfi mobo box says they are "uv reactive" but my fans dont make them change...do i need somfin? also, my cd drives dont match, neither does my floppy drive. Would it be ok if i get some paint and paint them to match my case? if so, which kind do i get? i will post some pics as soon as i get them uploaded to photobowl

Actualy the cables are awesome. You need a UV cold cathode to make them glow AKA a black light. Right now thats how mine looks cause all i have is blue LED fans and a blue cathode light. For the optical drives you can use any spray paint really. Just make sure it matches your case.

Find some wireloom at an auto parts store, or find some online thats UV reactive, I know I've seen some on eBay.

Then take a crap load of time and patients and make it look like:mine:
