Xoxide UV Cold Cathode 80mm Fans @ Bjorn3D

"If you need some extra case cooling or need to replace fans and want an easy way to add a cool neon glow to your case, then look no further than cold cathode fans! Today, I´ll be taking a look at the UV cold cathode 80mm fans from Xoxide. This product should really be called a kit though, like the "cold cathode kits" you´re probably used to, because it comes with all the goodies you need —- the fan, the round cold cathode tube, a switch and inverter. Read on to learn more and see what I think of this cool product."
