-- Strange Lights in My Box
-- By: GideonX
Please Note: I do not
take responsibility for your stupidty, if you break something that
you paid a lot for, tough luck. I told you to be careful.
A lot of our case submissions have included neon
lights as an added effect to the whole case modding fascination.
Some have blue and some have eerie black lights which illuminate the
PCB filled box quite nicely. So where and how do you attach
this light? I'll tell you now, its as easy as attaching another fan
to your box.
Here are some of the items needed to accomplish this
simple task. By the way, I am assuming you know basic wiring before
doing this tiny project. But if not, what better way to learn : )
You can find this neon package in most
auto performance shops. They don't come cheap, these are about
$25-29 a pop for this 10" version. There isn't much in
the package, its just the neon tube with a cigarette adapter for
your car. I chose the purple version, seems like a good color
that will stand out.
On the box, it says "By removing
adapter permanent installation is required". So I guess
I'll be doing the permanent installation.
You also need one of these molex
connectors if you intend to power this thing through your power
supply. These can be purchased in most electronic retailers
for about $1.50.
