First of all that link doesn't work.

I light up my IDE cables by using UV cathodes and UV Reactive IDE Cables.

You will need a Ultra Violet light to get them to glow like that.

With UV you will need the bigger 12 inch one's,If it was the regular one's you could probably get away with the 6 inch,I have a pair of blue 6 inch cathode's in my case and it light's it up pretty good.

i had 2 UV neons for my reactive ide and floppy cables but they didnt do much at all. i just dumped them when i got 2 blue neons with my fan controller, does a much better job tbh.
