blue cold cathode...

Postby port-error » Wed Dec 04, 2002 2:01 pm

if you have a blue cold cathode in your computer would stuff that is sprayed with UV sensitive paint light up? cause it says the blue cold cathode gives of UV light? or do you just need to buy a standard black light cold cathode? thanks.

craps! do you think a Black Light Cathode and a Blue Cathode would look okay in a case? i would like to have a blue color , and have the Rounded IDE cables and fans glow blue too. I'd need a black light for that?

You need a UV cathode to make your cables glow and fans too if they're UV sensitive. I runs two black lights with a blue cathode and it looks great. Your results vary depending on where you place the cathodes in your case and the type of window you have etc.

I have a full ATX case. I have two UV cathodes one top and a blue cathode on the side. I have 4 4 LED fans(blue), UV cables, a UV power supply mod, and an LED fan increaser(blue). You should paly around putting things in different places and decide what you like best. I am working on two other case mods right now maybe ill post pics when im finished.

keep me updated man! leave a PM for me when you get the pics of it. i'd like to see. I have a Lian-Li PC-6089 Mid-case. So i don't think i'll need two blacklights, i'm probably going to mount blue cathode on the bottom, blacklight on the side, get UV sensitive Rounded cables, blue led fans, and a UV case mod for the power source.
