Default Lighting / Sleeving

Hey guys well i had a birthday and my cousin says he will give me about 200shekels . I recently got the build on my sig and now i wanted to make a real art work. I was thinking of getting:
-SUNBEAM SILENT UV LED FAN 80MM BLUE for my side intake.
-blue sleeving for my cables
-2 cold cathodes so the cables will glow...

What do you guys think.
I live in Israel note my budget is 200 shekels here are the two shops i can buy from

UV is very dim compared to regular LED's, so keep that in mind.

UV reactive sleeving will not work well with regular cold cathodes, you'll need UV cold cathodes.

yea uv is pretty dim. but you dont really use uv as a "light". if the psu sleeving is uv reactive, or the fans, or your cables are uv reactive then it will show up really nicely.
