    NZXT, a company built on realizing the dreams of gamers worldwide, is proud to unveil a fresh approach to case lighting with the Sleeved LED Kit. Traditional lighting methods involve cold cathodes and even solid LED boards that take up additional case space. NZXT’s unique design pairs sleeved wires with a high density of LED’s, enabling enthusiasts to snake the lights between side panels and under components with ease. The end result is a beautiful glow throughout the case with a clean installation that doesn’t detract from the internal aesthetics. Users can adjust the light brightness to low, medium, and high levels with red, green, blue, white, or orange kits.

    “We designed the Sleeved LED Kit to be a simple out of the box solution to add a little extra style and personalization to your PC with minimal effort and investment,” said Johnny Hou, Founder and Chief Designer at NZXT.

    NZXT’s Sleeved LED Kit will be available at the end of this month for the MSRP of $9.99(1M) and $14.99(2M). For more information visit this page.

    No, actually is a nice product, many people want that and will likely pay that money. Im amazed no UV, but it's not fashionable anymore, is it?

    they really don't look that bad but at the same time they don't look that good.
    If i ever feel the urge to waste some money on lighting then i will get me some of them.

    All the people in here talking crap about this obviously can't solder or make a simple resistor/current limited LED schematic.... just the materials alone with the oportunity to adjust between high, med., and low would cost about twice the amount they are asking for. Not a bad product really.... and this coming from someone who installed LEDs into a fooseball table to make it appear that it had stadium lights. But hey, in this day and age all it takes to be called a computer modder is to put in some fans with LEDs in your case.

    Edit: I'm not trying to sound mad, just wanting to give credit where it's due. For a market out there with a bunch of crap, these don't seem too bad.

    Idk how much I trust any of their wiring products. I ordered one of their sleeved 24 pin extension cables and the plug was too tall to clip into my board, what kind of product testing allows that to happen? It's not like I'm running some obscure board.

    just like everything else there is going to be a bad one. Could have slipped past QC some how. there has been many people using them and your the first one that I personally have read that had a problem with it. Not saying that other people haven't but they can't be that bad or the forums would be flooded with people bitching about them.
