My System Specs

Default Most amazing lighting product ever.(unboxing request)

Well this is me asking linus to unbox this - Amazon.com: 16.4 Ft RGB Color Changing Kit with LED Flexible Strip, Controller + 24 key Remote and Power Supply, 5050rgb Kit: Electronics

It is basically sex when put inside a windowed case, its $40, which is sooo cheap for the quality of LED ribbon you get and it is really bright, its easily ran off a molex connector (ghetto style as ive found almost everything is - one day my power supply will fail and it will kill half the appliances in my house) so you can conceal the controller behind the mobo tray and have the IR sensor poking out a gap somewhere, the remote has a a bunch of controlls, including strobe, custm RGB colours, colour presets, 6300k white, brightness adust, rgb flash and fade, 7 color rgb fade and flash. With a bit of time with wiring there is easily enoug to run 2 strips behind your monitor for comfort (reduced eye strain) and to a make your room light up like a christmas tree.

I just want the world to know about this as i feel like its too good to be held back, pulls 36watts FYI.
Also NCIX could sell these? w/e i think it world be definately worth checking out, it puts those bitfenix strips to shame!

I would expect something like this with a very similar controller to be coming from a more PC-oriented company in the near future.

Haha yes, quite the tease indeed! Either way, if your looking for case lighting, look no further!
(Do we also tease which company? It kind of matters cause if im buying more of these, I would rather buy from bitfenix or who ever is doing it but unsure if they will ship to or stock in New Zealand.)

Oh and you may be able to point them in the right direction of being software based and running of an internal or external usb header, internals my pick, that would be pretty sick. Honestly the remotes a gimp.
