Well after reading some information on the underglow mod I've decided I want to attempt my first xbox mod.

I'm thinking of buying these: http://www.xoxide.co...ld-cathode.html
It has a molex connector so should I be able to take the molex off the HD or DVD drive to power the lights right?
I'm just thinking of putting an underglow under the front of the case, will they fit there?

I've decided to start with this since I'm not really confident with soldering leds and such.

It will fit under the bottom, just looks ghetto.

Will This El Wire Work?

And just run it all the way around the inside of my case?

El wire will work
You need to do some cutting if you want the 12 inch tube to fit in the xbox I believe. Measure the xbox front and sides.

yeah I just measured the case and its too small. I think I'll go with the El Wire. Maybe While I'm at it I'll make my jewel clear so I can see some light through the top smile.gif Since they seem pretty expensive to buy.

I think that the cold cathode would look better, and if you can't get it to fit you can buy 2 4" cathodes instead.

do you have a link to store that ships in Canada where i can buy 4" CC's? All the sites I checked only do 12"

thanks in advance smile.gif

Found some on llamma, http://secure.llamma...products_id=265

Do those come with the molex connector? so I wont need to solder, just stick them in the front and hook up the molex connector?
