Default Cathode Light and PSU

Can I use this cathode light kit with Kingwin KWI 450 Watt PSU? I am planning to put it inside my 451mm x 200mm x 430mm Sunbeam Evil Eye Case

lol, my case has some transparent parts, and I think the light would look really cool in there. Can I power that light through my PSU? Is there anything thaT I should know about?

Thanks!

if it is a dedicated PC light, it will link up via a molex, this is an assumption but a start

its almost certainly a molex connector in which case you should be able to use virtually any psu. however if they do not come with a power inverter you will have to purchase one seperately.

power supply blows. You can get a much better one for 70 bucks.

Since you live in canada.

enermax

Your light should fit just fine. You might have to make it fit a little. Just be creative. The lights take hardly any power at all, so don't worry about power consumption.

Well, the ebay deal actually has a lower shipping rate. I will have to pay $7.95 for shipping on ebay...and its $9.95 in coolerguys (plus it says additional handling charges might apply).

Looks like it has an inverter....and I've got a lot of good reviews on my PSU, so I think I'll stick with that (check my other thread)

Thanks a lot for your inputs guys....greately appreciated!
