    No there are many ways to light up the case. Check NZXT Hue RGB LED and NZXT Sleeved LED in many colors and in 1-2 meters length.

  2. If you're willing to do a little soldering, you can pick up LED strips for a couple of dollars off ebay, then connect them to a Molex plug.
  3. Well in early teens i went so crazy about lightning a PC that i fitted a multicolor AC LED Lamp inside my PC. :D (Which was dangerous to whole PC i was required to route a AC current carrying wire inside the case.

    No being grown up ( as people say) I would just buy some DC LED stripes rated at either 5V or 12V and connect to Molex.

  4. I tried LED fans first, wasn't bright enough for me. Then went to the LED strips, still, not bright enough.

    Finally found these: Cold Cathode Light Kit

  5. If your LED strip isn't bright enough; up the voltage :)

    I have a couple of VERY bright red LED boards around, though they're not currently in use.

  7. Good choice dear, you'll be saved from soldering etc. Just install and paste the strip and you are good to go.
