OK I have started a new build and already bought the In Win Dragon Rider case. I want to set it all up with cold cathodes and led fans. I want to make the cold cathodes sounds active.

I have found this controller panel I really like.

Here is the sounds actived module Im thinking about unless these is somthing better.

What I want to know is can I go from the PSU to the conroller panel to the Sound Module to the Cold cathodes and skip the inverter module the cold cathodes come with? I dont want to try to hide 6 little boxes all over in my case.

Also if this will not work is there another controller panel that will work I would like to have at least 3 switches for different sets of cold cathodes.

Edit: I didn't read your question right ;)

I Think you need to use the inverter boxes. But you can buy inverters that can hold more than one cold cathode.

No, inverter box converts DC to AV to power cold cathodes: http://www.3dgameman.com/q-and-a/385/what-does-cold-cathode-invertor-do
