Computer fans that like to trick out their case to look better or those who are into modding know that some lighting can really make the case pop. The catch is that many lighting systems like CCFLs and LEDs often come on bulky boards and have designs that can be hard to hide and integrate inside a cramped PC case.
NZXT has unveiled a new line of LED lighting accessories that come in five different colors called the Sleeved LED Kit. The kit has LEDs that are inside a black length of wire loom material like we typically see wrapped around the cables of a PSU. Those wire wraps hide the wires that power the LEDs and make the strips flexible and easier to install and hide. The strip has multiple LEDs in one length of the sleeve.
