Default recommend me some uv lights

i need some uv lights for my case! ive searched on newegg and apparently all the uv lights on there suck cause for uv reactive things to glow the light has to be around 1cm away from it. i want a powerful uv light thatll make all my components glow no matter where i put them. any suggestions for some good uv lights would be helpful and it needs to be under $50-60

Cold cathodes have done the trick for me. Even just the light emitted from my front 80mm cathode fan is enough to light my uv components. I recomend xoxide and crazypc for all modding.

Wire up a few rows if realllly powerful UV LED's. a couple rows of about 20, pointed at your mobo area, will give a much better effect than a CC. PM me if you want me to build a couple if you want.

oh but most of the lights on xoxide and crazy pc have the same lights on newegg and most people left reviews saying it wasnt bright enough

edit: do you have a link to your 80mm fan

and xenium do you have pics about what youre talking about cause i cant really picture it
