Computer area: pretty lighting!

Hey guys, I've seen a lot of custom desktop pic threads where people have a beautiful lighting scheme going on behind their computer set-ups on the wall. Just wondering which kind of lights are generally used to get these effects and where abouts they can be purchased from. Thanks a lot!

  1. They look like cold cathode tubes.
  2. Thanks a lot for the reply. Just wandering how these are powered if they are not within a PC case? Not sure on their connection type?

    If I had to power them, I would use a spare PSU. Just an old psu would work to power them. I'm not sure if there's another way to power except with another PSU.

    But thats just my guess; another PSU is powering them.
  4. Ah right, thanks for that :)
  5. You're welcome. They run off a standard 12V MOLEX power lead. I admit to having some logisys 12" UVs in my windowed case. Get an MOLEX extension and run it outside your case to the tubes, actually to the power converter, which then accepts the tubes' power connectors.
  6. Thanks again :)
