LED lighting inside the cabinet.

If you fear your creation will cause damage, them do more research before building one. And as kartechnology has mentioned, your psu will shut it down itself.

Same fear here also.

your psu will have inbuilt short circuit protection, believe me, i wantedly shorted my usb port with a har-pin and then it shut down instantly(+5v and gnd were shorted) and it didnt turn on, i removed the power plug(on the wall/ack of psu)(switching the switch off and on on the back wont work)
and it powered up...
you know the feeling when it power down...scary but everything okay as it was my 1st time that too with a brand new corsair cx430v2

Why don't you get it from eBay? I had purchased this one:

Are the ebay ones good enough? I was getting 5 mtr for 100rs. So this is much more viable option.

I have bought a BLUE LED Strip from ebay and got it soldered to a 4 pin MOLEX connector but the guy who have done it do not know which is + or - values on the LED strip.So if I connect it to my PSU will it damage it in any way?

Molex male (on the LED strip) can be attached only one way in molex female (in PSU), so there's no thinking of which terminal is positive and which is negative.

You can try Antec Accent Lighting. It is a 51inch long strip that has 6 led lights and works on usb port. It has adhesive on the backside. You can place it on the back or on the top side and connect it to the usb port. Second option you can try is fan with led lighting in it. But they will be more costly. LED Strips are more cheaper.
