Okay I have some cold cathode lights for my rig that showed up just before I moved. When unpacking I noticed that I have the lights and little blue "sound acivators" ( I think thats what they are, but nothing else no packaging, directions or wires other than those coming off the lights. I can't figure how to get them powered up... the connectors have three small holes with two wires, what kind of connector do I need for these??? nothing on my PSU comes close to working with these tiny connectors the small blue boxes except an even smaller looking female connector... I'm completely confused...

Any ideas???

Thanx.

BVC os correct, i got my case and case fans from Xoxide. They however sent me red in stead of the blue case fans I ordered. I called customer support to find out what I could do, they said keep the fans and we will ship the correct ones. Good job on their part.

I wouldn't except the same thing because CS told me that with the price of the fans it isn;t worth the shipping return. Now the cathode tubes are more expensive and heavier so you will probably have to return them. Just clarifing because I didn't want you to think you'd get a free cathode kit.

Are you missing the Inverter?
