    adding a light

    I Have dumped my noisey lighted case fans but I kinda miss the light they gave off a real nice RED glow so I am thinking of adding somekind of light but being new to this I thought it might be wise to ask for some recomendations
    I have this case

    any suggestions for something that takes little juice, and gives a nice brite red color?

    I had a similar case, and I went to a local auto customization/stereo install place and found 6" neons/CCFLs, mounted them right behind the front bezel, for a frontal glow. 4, 6, and 12" CCFLs can be bought just about anywhere online, and if you find they are more pink than red, you can wrap the bulb casements with red celophane until they give off the shade you're after.

    There are many options available including CCFLs as Grandpa suggested, or you could
    go with LED's.

    Not sure how much modding experience you have but there are all sorts of great
    guides on this & many other subjects in the modding sticky :

    Haven't seen that light personaly but looks good. Many on the forums
    say that red CCFL aren't that red so LED's are probably your best bet.
