I have 2 UV cathodes, and I am looking for the optimal placement of them.

Right now I have one going right next to the motherboard vertically, which does a good job of lighting up my cables and most of my tubing.

So, where should the other one go? Any ideas appreciated. This is in an Antec case. :)

just experiment with different places, thats what i'd do. but i have no life, so thats just me. i haven't done anything with cold cathodes yet but i think on the bottom of the case along the side panel would be a good place. just fool around and see!

Yea, that's a good idea. I just wanted to get some ideas from other people to see what they do. :)

I have 2 in my chieftec case (antec clone) and I put one at the top and one at the bottom. It lights it pretty evenly even though its a full tower.

Ok. I looked at the top, and I have the railing, PSU, and drive cages blocking it - maybe I will try to run it looking like a T - one on top of the mobo and one vertically next to it. :cool:
