Default Lighting?

Hey i just have a quick lighting question.i have a set of UV cathodes but i also wanted to add some blue cathodes. Would the Blue ones affect anything with the UV ones? like drown it out or make it work less?

Blue cathodes will completely drown out the uv cathodes

Sad but true... deal with it :P

u can turn off the blue cold cathodes while the uv cold cathodes are on. and when the uv cc's are off then u can turn on the blue cc's.

Or use a highlighter. And actualy the blue will help the UV. If you have UV your parts will still glow when the blue is on. But you dont really notice it much because of the blue around it. Also, ive noticed my blue LED fans make my DFI glow too.
