-- Strange Lights in My Box
-- 7.18.2000
-- 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.
