    Question Lighting And Cooling!!

    Well, I am now going to start making my case look pretty and cold...
    Now some things i need to know...

    Does a UV cold cathode actualy light up the case...

    Whats a good switch thing that can adjust the fan speed AND turn the cathlode(s) on and off.

    Which of these 2 heat sinks do u guys like better?? THIS or THIS ... I am going to stick an 80mm UV Fan on it!!

    Next Which UV fans to get?? This, This, This or any other pretty UV fans you guys know about!!

    By the way i have an Antec Plusview case....

    UV lights shouldn't light up your case but they do Its not really UV its more 'UV' or Purple ... I'd choose the ThermalRight cooler out of those two! All those fans will probably have been made out of the same plastic so just go for which one you think looks better

    fans on heatsinks move hot air away, not pushed cold air on top

    I thought fans on top of heatsinks forced air downwards through the heatsink etc? At least that's what my Areo 7+ does...

    Providing you had something to keep the liquid in the radiator cool - which means another radiator that would have to have a faster/bigger fan, so that it gets cooler than the first rad, which kind of defeats the point... You might as well have a proper cpu block...

    Sorry to rain on your parade...
