Question UV Lighting

my case is kind of ... bland so I was thinking of getting some UV cables to stick inside it to make is prettier lol. The case is blue so I was just going to get blue UV cables...

my only questions is:

What do I need to get?

I was looking at TigerDirect since ZipZoomFly didnt have much and they have blue UV cooling sleeves, so I was just thinking of putting these sleeves around my IDE(or SATA when I get a Raptor) and my power cables.

Now do I need to order a 80mm blue UV fan to make them light up or how does this work and what should I do?

For the cooling sleeves I was looking at this:

And for the UV Fan:

If I stick the fan in, will the UV cables react or do I need to order a special UV light??

Any help would be appreciated

Ghost, as for the fan, and for the sleeves. They both require lighting at the bottom or wherever you place the cathodes in your case. I picked up dual uv cathodes at tiger direct for about 15$. All UV light cathodes are blue... too btw, so I picked those up, I have 2 uv fans and I have my board and psu cables are all uv reactive.... the 2 lights that i picked up were more than enough...

all in all to anwser ur question... to use any of the things u want there must be UV LIGHTS IN YOUR CASE.... the fan and the sleeves wont do sh*t if theres no lights. hope this helps
