Most of these kind of power adapters were designed to fit inside European Schuko sockets. They have an elongated hexagonal base with half of the pins insulated. They never really sit right in our standard three pin or two pin sockets, so I've had to strap them down with zip ties. Then I saw these adapters on Amazon, they fit securely inside them. The adapters are pricey at 4 for 1250 but at least for me, they're worth the peace of mind knowing that a gust of wind isn't going to knock the router offline.

Hi. I have a Chiptronex HX1000 with 3 RGB Fans at front and a simple fan at rear. I am happy with front but I find my cabinet too dark from side.


There is some lighting by Asus logo on Motherboard. Almost nothing is visible from side with tinted tempered glass side panel.

Fortunately (by currents graphics card pricing), I am not into gaming so no graphics card is installed.

How can I make inside of my PC a bit brighter from inside? I tried RGB fan at rear but that was too bright for my eyes and I didn't like it.

I don't like LED strip much (if it is visible) either.

White or RGB light is what I want.

You can stick this LED strip to the inside of the cabinet. If your mother board has a header for RGB strips, this strip can be directly connected. Else this has a USB port as well. Route it to the back of the cabinet via one of the expansion slots and plug it to USB ports at the back - https://amzn.to/3yHD4du
