My System Specs

Default LED Acrylic tube vs Cold Cathode

After PM, LED costs 50cents more than the cathode, but cathode also comes with TWO tubes.
Which one is better to put in my HAF922?

Red LED Acrylic tube:
NCIX.com - Buy Logisys ML12RD 12IN 18 Red LED in Acrylic Tube 4PINS Molex Connector 12V DC No Inverter Needed - ML12RD In Canada.

Cold Cathode:
NCIX.com - Buy Logisys CLK12RD2 Dual Red Cold Cathode Kit 12IN 3.0MM - CLK12RD2 In Canada.

I've seen enough inverters go up in flames to pick the LED's.

LED's are healthier, brighter and more energy saving.

The choice is clear. LED.

Thanks guys, will go get the LED today. (Not sure if all HAF922 are the same, but my red LED fan in the front is dim as ****, makes my case look so boring compared to my previous antec 900)

I own a similar LED cathode by Logisys, just keep in mind they're not as uni-directional as a cold cathode would be. but in terms of safety, the LED is a great alternative.

Weird, I thought CCs were brighter. That said, they do use more power for sure.

That is true, but it also causes 60% more thread necromancy and spamming.. so you have to weigh those with the electricity cost and decide what one is best for your application. ;)
