hmmm.....i dunno if i should get a CC ring thingy frm a LED fan and stick it under my jewel or just make my own ring with 8 LEDs....

the thing is the the CC is alot easier to do but more expensive .... and the LEDs are cheap but the ring takes soo long to make and i have to buy resistors.....hmmm...

share your thoughs

thanx

if u have a LE box that is transparent make a led ring. but if u got a normal box, CCs have more of an even glow, and led rings usualy dont. and a led ring only needs 1 resistor for those 8 leds. and the lil box that comes with a CC(inverter i think?) u MIGHT have alil trouble fitting it.

Go cold cathode ring, these look very nice when they are light up!

The inveter you can fit straight behind the DVD-ROM drive, its a very simple install and takes hardly any effort to connect up.

The ammount of light these things throw off is amazing, if i was in your position i would deffinatly go cold cathode. Thats what i have but its not yet fitted in my box, youve probably seen pic's of my xbox and youve commented on it a couple of times before biggrin.gif

Ive however had my cathod ring powered up a couple of times and its very very nice i would recommend anyone going with one, they don't cost that much either.

Good luck. beerchug.gif

LEDs= more lit up jewel, uneven light, harder to install..

CCs=Less lit up jewel, evenly displaced light, easy to install,
