    Haven't seen much of this mentioned so I thought I would be a first to help any and all out there with it..

    For all you who like me, likes to make my case really glow (we all know how some neons don't glow worth a crap). I have come up with a great Idea that has been done but rarely mentioned. I happen to work for a glass company and thought that I might try this and amazingly it seems that my lighting has improved by least 50% better then B4.

    I have basically used 1/8" mirror to fully line the inside of my tower where ever possible.. bottom, top, backplate around the mobo. I used basic dble sided sticky tape, cut it to size and just stuck it in there. Just make sure you use 1/8", NOT 1/4". Most 1/8" mirror come with a safety backing which helps with the adheshion of the tape and any chances of breaking. As far as conductivity... So far no issues with mine for quite sometime... But I do love the improvement of my neon for sure!

    I have tested this under diff. types of Neon and black light... Just to let you know the mirror do not improve significantly with the mirrors.. To me, the mirrors seem to be absorbing or just look black to the black light more then helping it... but it does make a great effect for any UV reactive wiring/cable with the mirrors. Thought I would update that piece of info..
