A Closer Look - Lighting Kit

Looking at the bottom of the HUE 2 RGB Light Controller, there are 4 mounting points that mimic a 2.5” drive, so it can be installed in most SSD mounting points in your case. If you don’t wish to mount it in a drive bay, it also includes 4 magnets so that you can place it anywhere in your case with ease. To prevent scratching up your case, NZXT has also included 4 foam pads in each of the 4 corners of the controller. In the center of the unit you also have the model, input voltage/amp and serial number of the HUE 2 RGB Lighting Controller.

On the side, you have 2 of the lighting controller 2 channel outputs as well as some circular venting. Looking towards the back you have the 2 remaining channels, as well as a micro-USB to connect the unit to your USB 2.0 on your motherboard, and a plug for the Molex power cable.

Looking to the other side you have some more venting and, on the front, you have a solid curved surface.

The top of the unit is also solid and includes that ever so subtle branding that NZXT loves to do. You can only see the branding at certain angles.

The included RGB LED strips have a white top with 10 RGB LEDs evenly spaced out. Each strip contains a male and female end so you can daisy-chain them with the included cables.

Looking at the back of the strip, you have a 3M adhesive strip that you can use to attach them to your case. If you have a metal case and wish not to permanently install the strips, NZXT has included 4 magnets in each strip for easy installation.
