Default Number of Cold Cathodes?

I am going to buy some UV cold cathodes from xoxide.com and was wondering how many are needed to make the UV reactive things really stand out.

Im either going to get 2 or 4. Leave me some suggestions.

I think he asked how many are NEEDED, not how many you need to see UV reactive material a mile away!! (j/k).

Get yourself 2 12inch that should work fine, i had the same in my first case and everything stood out real nice and bright, just make sure you get a quality set the cheap one's burn out kind of quik.

I only have one right now, and my case doesn't look bad at all. I am fixing to get more, though. I just can't decide what color. My current one is Red/Blue/Green. I want something that will go well with that.

Well I decided to go with 4 UV cathodes from xoxide.com

I decided to get 2 more because they were on sale and for $10 more I just decided "what the hell, its only $10" and went with 4.

I got 2 of these

i have a friend who only has one is his case of course he has one of those crystal clear cases and he mirrored the bottom so we have to shut off the thing when we want to watch TV or else we get a glare even in good lighting
