Default Wire Sleeving Questions

Hey I was thinking about getting this:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/37...tl=g35c177s375

for some wire management.. Now I have a few questions... How many feet do you think I should get to do all my wires including the PSU, Fans, Sata, IDE(If I round it) etc?

Also I wanna get some cathode lights to light up the case and illuminate the sleeving, but does it matter if it says its UV or not.. for example I wanna get this light:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16800888026

But This one says its UV is there a difference:

Get a couple feet since it's so cheap, then you'll have some for future use. Also, Yes the light being UV does make a difference. If the light is UV then it will make your UV cables glow more vibrantly and the cables will look like they have lights in them, if that's not what you want then go for a regular light.

Will the UV Light light up the rest of the case though or could one of each work? I just want my case to light up blue and the cables to look all glowy lol

Also I think I am just gonna get something like this for the IDE cable instead of just rounding it myself

So like If i bought 10 feet for 12.50 would that be good do you think?

I think you should just go with your second choice and get pre-rounded cables. You may be able to find ones with UV reactive casing. About the lighting, If you do find UV reactive casing and get a UV light, if you stick a non UV light in there with it, it may drown out the effects of the UV light so just be weary of that. It's all about placement I suppose. Also, Thank you so much for posting links to products you've been looking at instead of coming on here blindly and asking what people think is the best product on the market. Too many people don't know how to use google.

Always remember to figure out exactly how long of a ide cable you need. If its too long it wont fold over like a flat ide cable and it will be tough to direct the cable through your case. If the cable is too short, well whether it is the flat or round ide your screwed. Lol
