One of the things that most PC enthusiasts start out with, when first beginning to mod or customize a system, is adding a splash of colour. This can be done in one of many ways, but the most simple way, is by making sure that your components, like your RAM, motherboard, and GPU, all have complimentary colors. The next easiest step is by adding LED fans. But if you want to take what you've got, and really allow the colours to pop, then you'll have to add some lighting.
The Satechi LED Light Strip makes modding through lighting extremely easy and versatile. Usually, you'd buy your lighting components, in the colour that you need them to be. However, when you want to change your theme, you'll typically have to retire those, and purchase new lighting components, fans, etc. The Satchi Light Strip allows you to dial in the colour to any one of seven LED colors, using an included controller.
The kit comes with two 12 inch RGB LED color light strips, a 12V DC power cable, and 4-pin D connector, and a controller with extension cable. They retail for $29.99 US a piece and can be picked up from Amazon today.
While the $29.99 US price point seems a bit high, you have to consider that these strips will probably work with your system today, and in the future. Even if you change your mind on the colours. They will also last for up to 100,000 hours, giving you some peace of mind, no matter which colour combination you decide to go with on this, and any future builds.
