Default Cold Cathodes

Is there anything hard about installing them, or do I just use adhesive to attach them and use a 4 pin molex connector to give it power?

nutthin hard at all about installing them,they usually come with some sort of stuff to attach them to the case and mostly all use the molex connector, so all u have 2 do is find a spot and put them in.

The stuff they come with doesnt really work i reccomend getting velcro and attaching it that way. THats what i have done on several sets because the stick em it comes with falls right off.

That's my case, I'm not sure what color the fan is gonna be, but i'll probably replace it sometime in the near future if it's not the one I want, anyways, what do you think would look better in that case? Red, Blue, White, or Black. (I think they have black CC's, am I wrong?)

no they dont make black. i have built 2 systems with that case one using green and one using blue they both looked sick. I would actually use 2 cc with that case since the window is small. The fan on the side is multi color and loud. I reccomend buy 3 colored silent fans. 2 for the back and 1 for the side. In the front of the case theres already 2 fans and 4 spots. in the back theres 2 spots with 2 fans. Take the 2 fans from the back and put them in the front so you have 4 coming in from the front. then colored ones going out the back and 1 colored one going in from the side.

But the ratio wouldn't be good, I mean, 4 in, and only 1 out?
