What exactly is the difference between a Cold Cathode and a Ultra Violet Cold Cathode?

UV cathodes are like black lights, they make things glow.

In any case, does adding a circular cold cathode mean heat issues? Would I have to add a side fan or 12V mod/80mm fan mod, or can I get away with what it comes with?
Finally which one would u suggest would look "better" in an extreme edition Xbox (see thru green) a UV CC or standard CC.

They do warm up, but I havent expieranced heat issues. If you can get a UV Green cathode, then put that in, elsewise, just go for the regular green.

Heat isnt really an issue. i like cold cathodes because they offer more even light (circular - under the jewel). Uv cold cathods are like black lights. they just make certain things glow in the dark.

another tip, check the product discription of the CC. Some times online stores say its a cold cathode light but its just a neon light, they burn out very fast and are cheaper.

well round CCs come WITH fans, so you can just replace the stock one anyways with it.
