hello
i have a question i originally wanted to install 4 ccfl case lights with 2 invertors from logisys 12" but it would not work. the pc would not boot. kinda scary. it only accepts 1 inverter 2 ccfl lights.


second, after about 2-3 years of lights it stop giving off light. what went wrong?

these things are extremely fragile. the invertor i can replace but if i try to move the lights they always break :)

Don't use CCFL lighting in cases. It's really really bad for heat output and just increases the amount of case ventilation required.

IMO its very beautiful.

from what i read, it is like 200+ volts but it only uses 8 watts of power which doesn't sound like much heat. the light is cold to touch.

the inverter though is hot no doubt.

AFAIK the bulbs seem ok. i guess its an invertor problem.
