You can make your own. At my place, LED's are available at 5 for Rs.10. You can easily make you'r own. However the quality of pre-built will be much better. You can get led-strips from car shops. Just make sure that they run at 12V.

ok...but how am i suppose to connect it with psu?
 
> The LED you will get will typically operate at 3V and a safe value of current for it is 20mA.

> From the molex port, you can get 5V and 12V.

> Connecting 4 LEDs of 3V will consume a total of 3*4=12V.

> In a nutshell, just connect 4 LEDs in series and power it with the molex port.

> Google it to get more detailed results.

A GUIDE for lighting urs PC
requirements:

12v DC led lighting strip( length and color depending on you)
4 pin molex connectors
some wires
soldering

producer:

  • soldering two wire to LED strip .In this case i used RED wire as positive terminal and BLACK as negative terminal.
  • connected positive terminal to YELLOW(+12v) color wire in 4 pin MOLE X
  • connected NEGATIVE terminal to BLACK (gnd) color wire in 4 pin molex
  • connect the molex to PSU





if want to connect more than one LED strip to single 4 pin molex connector .by using terminal block u can manage the multiple LED stripes .
actually i didn't try terminal block because its not available in my place.so its available in ebay

DiY project is great but professionally made items deserves some good amount .. and that's we see LED fans ( and other items ) on the market and some of them costs less and others more. It all depends on the quality and brand value. I think harshilsharma63 will think the world is doomed again when he finds out the price of good quality Noctua fans or some quality mobos just as an example ;-)

@topgear its no secret that professionally made thing will exceed the quality of a DIY product, but its the satisfaction of making something by your own hand and then seeing it work along side other things.
