I just got the NZXT hue and I am trying to install it in my case. The issue I am having is that I have a 800D case with a powered coated surface and the LED strip is not sticking to my case very well. I made sure everything was clean and everything else, but it is still having some issues. Does anyone know of a trick to get the strip to adhere to the case?

super gue is all i can say. My lights constantly fall off and i didn't think of the powered coast being the problem but I think it was. I just gorilla glued and super glued the velcow(sp?) to the case.

velcow(sp?)

What leather cows aren't good enough for you, you need yours in velour?
Psh... what a snob... P


I agree with everyone else though, double-sided tape works fantastic.

Though duct tape, hot glue and zipties are my favorite implements of destruction... I mean adhesion.

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

Hmmmmmmmmm Duct tape doesn't want to work. I really don't want to glue it because then it will be there forever, but I am running out of options.

I tried scotch tape, duct tape, electrical tape, and small velcrow pads. I will venture to the store tomorrow and pick up some stronger stuff and see what happens.

If that does not work I hop in a Madcat and Blast it to microscopic Particles.

With my 650D (which is almost similar to 800D) I use 3M double sided tape.
You may also use any glue.

I do not see magnets mentioned. I am unsure if the case is aluminum or steel, but fasten the light to the magnet and it could easily be moved when in the way from any upgrade.
