Question Please Help a noob with H50 watercooling mod

Hi guys

Im fairly new to water-cooling with custom loops and stuff
i got my hands on a used H50 and i was thinking about modding it

like this

Ultimate H50 Mod Guide for Noobs

currently i have Antec Khule 920

this is my set up for the moment and it is a work in progress....
soory about the bad picture qulity. after updating to IOS 5 my Iphone camera quality is shit...Damn you apple damn you...

so this is my question :D

currently i have a Red LED strip to light up the system

if iam planning to use Feser One - UV ORANGE - F1 - Coolant...will it glow with out adding a cold cathode cause personaly i think they are too bright for my taste..
i alreday have a pair of Red Logisys 12 inch cathodes which i removed after putting in the LED strip

My System Specs


With UV coolant you need a ultraviolet light source. I don't know much about the H50 but using dyes in a high restriction (injection plate) water block might cause buildup and I believe orange and pink dyes are the worst for staining. Color also fade away with time. I'm sure a more experience water cooling guru will chime in.
