Building a High-End Gaming PC – The Lighting Strip

After the Corsair Commander Pro controller finally arrived, I had enough RGB ports to also install the Lighting Strip.

The Corsair Lighting Strip has four pieces meant to go on each edge of the case. Unfortunately I could only use two.

  1. The Crystal 680X does not have a flat surface on the top edge. There hinges and screws in the way. You could stick a strip there but it looks too crumbled. I didn’t like it.
  2. The back edge would have been ok had I not installed one of the 144mm RGB fans there. It reaches up to the edge so the strip wouldn’t fit anymore.

The left me with the bottom and the front. It turned out to be quite nice anyway.
