I rigged these tubes up and turn them on. We have a 12" Icy Blue, an 8" Industrial White and a 4" Acid Green, all sitting inside my Inwin Q500 full tower.
I threw the blue and white tubes into the inside of the case to shine through the window. For the 4" green, I thought it would be neat to get some light into the front blowhole.
So with the lights out, we'll take a look at how it all meshes together:
I didn't fully mount the switches to this case since I don't think I will be using every CCFL in one spot, but this should give you a great idea of what these kits look like.
The Icy Blue is extremely rich in color up close, and it gives off an eerie glow within the case. The white is kind of strange, it looks like there's just a regular light you find in your house lit inside the box. The Acid Green is probably my favorite. The green is extremely bright and it gives the front intake a whole new look.
I recommend these kits due to the fact that everything is included to get you going. If you don't want to mount the switch, just leave it inside the case in the on position. With the 4" at $22 and the full sized 12" is $26, the price is definitely not high. Most un-assembled kits come in at about $18-$20, why bother with that when for a few bucks more, you get an insulated inverter and a pre-wired switch/molex. You even get an acrylic casing to protect the tube.
