LEDS for Computer Case

I am getting the case: Thermaltake Core V71 Extreme Full Tower and want a nice strip of blue leds. What length of led should I get to go around the interior walls of the glass area. Also any good cheap recommendations for leds?
Thanks in advance!

  1. I'm currently using a set of LED strips I found on Amazon. They didn't look reliable, but it turns out they are! They're very bright, and the included remote allows me to illuminate my case in RGB.

    The package includes two 30cm strips, which have no problem lighting up my whole case when attached to the inside of my side panel.

  2. I got these for my NZXT Phantom 530 and they light it up nicely. Plus they have an on/off switch as well as different brightness levels.

    Think they are less then 20 bucks on Amazon.

    How would you connect these leds to the case? PCI-E slot?
    Please explain.

    The kit comes with a small power supply that is powered with a Male 4 Pin Molex connector which can connect to your PSU's Female 4 Pin Molex connector (also known as a peripheral cable).



    As far as I'm aware, most, if not all, PSU's come with a peripheral cables. If you send me the name and brand of your PSU I can tell you whether or not it includes one.

    The kit's mini power supply then has two Female cables, which you insert the Male cables of the LED strips into.

    I hope using the description I just gave you paired with the visuals on the Amazon page, you can get a decent understanding of how these work. Feel free to ask me if you are still confused.

    Thanks for the helpful answer, today I will check if my PSU has the male molex connecters (probably does)
    What size case did you mount these leds into?
    I am thinking of getting the NZXT S340 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Case

    Would the .6m of leds fit to go around the case windows (left, top and right side probably)?
    Thanks in advance!

    I'm using the Fractal Design Define R5, which is 9.13" in width. The NZXT S340 is only 7.87" across, so these LEDs would fit great vertically. Though they wouldn't fit as well horizontally, they are very bright strips, so either way they won't have a problem illuminating your entire case.

    NZXT Hue+. Pricey, but totally worth if if you want to truly customize your PC. You can control the LEDs from NZXT's CAM software and add effects to them.

    If you want only a static color, go with the LED strips suggested above.
