well, ive just cleared out my first jewel, and it looks wonderful....i know not big news, but big for me biggrin.gif

ive also read that cold cathode lights may interfere with the harddrive and cause problems.. How real of an issue is this? Caus i would rather use a cold cathode than the leds, seems to have a smoother look.

Well, let me know what youve done, and why/whynot you would use cathodes/leds.

thanks guys

peace

Cold Cathodes won't interfere with the HD, the inverter that you will need to get the CC working though will interfere sometimes. To make sure nothing will be damaged wrap it in aluminium foil, then with electrical tape. The electrical tape is a must, because aluminium foil and electronics won't match.

And you might want to put it behind the DVD-drive.

I might add that cold cathodes give off more heat than LEDs, so if you put a lot of them in your Xbox, you might have some overheating issues.

this is not directed to any one person, but more to the community. These are the most unfriendly forums i have ever been on. If you people hate helping other people so much, why do you even post on here, or continue to visit?....I guess im just dumbfounded by this...also, thecheat, if you read my original post a little closer, it says 'ive also READ that cold cathodes my cause interference'....you may want to try not jumping to conclusions so quickly, one day it will make you look like an ass(unless that is what you want) wink.gif


And SICKdeminsion, thanks for pointing out that thread, that is the exact one i read yesterday that brought me to ask this question, i was just looking for a few more opinions on the matter, but i thouroughly enjoyed the sarcasm.

well people, thanks for what help i got

peace
