Cold cathodes

I'm about to put in 2 cold cathodes in my boxen.

It looks pretty straight forward. Do I need to know anything before I do this? I.e. temperatures, interference...

The only thing I can think of is to make sure the cathodes don't have anything resting ontop of them, and are affixed so that they don't fly around and snap (in a car, falling off your desk, etc). Be careful with them and they should be fine.

Also if you're using an inverter which doesn't come in a small plastic box, make sure it is insulated from the case.

Mine seem to put out a fair amount of heat, they get almost no airflow though.

If they did, I'd buy a bakers dozen to supplement the fans ;)

Out of curiosity, for you guys with lighting, how many cold cathodes/neons do you guys have in your cases?

I currently have 2x12" cold cathodes. One blue, and one white to make a light blue effect.
I'm thinking of buying another 2. I should behave.

Why the hell would you want light in your case?



To act like a sick cunt perhaps?

So you can see whats in there.

You're in the modding forum, what do you expect?

if you leave your cathodes on for an extended period of time, will they "die"?

Yes, they have a guesstimated lifespan of about 10,000 hours to 20,000 hours.

Also, make a new thread for these questions, rather than bumping these old ones ;)
