Default What color cathodes?

I'm putting cathodes in my computer and I want to know what color I should put in. I have the X-Blade case with the blue except the fan on the side is purple and blue. I want to make my case either blue or green. Any suggestions?

I don't get it, from the pics the case looks to have blue lights already why do you want to add more?

You could sleeve your wires with UV sleeving and put a UV CC in there but the LEDs in your case might limit the effects of the UV light.

The only light's in the case are fan's,I have the same case and had to put in a set of 6" cathode's to brighten it up some.

I knew that the light came from the fans, I was just saying that I though that it looked like it was light up enough but maybe the case isn't as bright in reality as it is in those pics. Or maybe you guys just like really bright cases. idk

No the one fan barley lights anything up. I don't necessarily wan't everything to be UV reactive I just want to brighten it up in there. I'm thinking of just buying one 12" cathode and seeing how that does. Also I have to pick up one of these: https://www.shoplci.com/details_en.a...BOI-NEO-SB-500
