Default Will cathodes show up?

Im gettin paid in a week, and Im already gettin 2x1gb of gskill because one of my current sticks went bad, and im down to 256mb.

Im also going to order round IDE cables, and was wondering about the UV reactive ones. I have a Briza-97 anvanced cooling system case from Coldgen Group, and it does not have a window, but it does have 10,000 vent holes in the side and 4,300 vent hole in the top. I was wondering if i got a cathode kit, would UV reactive cables show up.

Im also thinkin about gettin new fans, because the ones that came with it are loud and barely push any air. But they have blue LED's, and the blue has an amazing effect on the system. I cant decide if i should get a blue cathode kit and UV reactive fans or just blue led fans.

Basically, what would look the coolest?

here are some pics of my case from google: (I think i got the last one of these cases from newegg)

UV reactive cables react to UV light.......therefore you will not get much of an effect from a blue cathode but there will be a slight effect. if you want to use UV reactive stuff you need to get UV lights. just get blue LED fans and a blue cathode kit in my opinion
