As I didn't want to use red (already used) or yellow/orange (looks 
bad), didn't want to use green (green skin) and I had the blue LEDs 
right at hand, I choose this. It is better then a dark light bar.

I have 5 mm LEDs. I used only one insted of the two bulbs. I had only two
blue LEDs and two Octanes. If I had the chooice, I would try white 3 mm
LEDs. There are other options like EL foil or EL bands or cold kathode 
or ... It is amazing what these case modder kids use...

Good, bright white and blue LEDs wheren't there when the Octane was born. 
Green LEDs have no good contrast to the green skin and yellow/orange
is ugly. (IMHO)
