I assume that you are talking about the waterblock for Bitspower?
May I suggest that if you want to have the christmas lights you will need to order the LED fantasy strip which Bitspower offers. I just got my waterblock through and will be fitting it tonight, however, I don't have the LED strip due to the block not including it built in. It's good for those who don't want it lit up like me but bad if you want the lights as they are an additional feature which you have to buy.
Enjoy the cool temperatures when it arrives.


Hummm. Do you know the model number since you already order it? Thanks.
 
PS. I already have cool temps. :)

 
 
Which Model number were you after, here are both the block and the two LED strips which Bitspower offer.
Model Number of the waterblock is BP-VGEV1080TIKE
Model Number of the DRGB Strip is BP-RTFT200-DRGB
Model Number of the RGB Strip is BP-RTFT200-RGB
 


Okay, looks like I found the right part numbers for the Strip. It looks as if any strip can be used?

I have been told by Bitspower that either LED Strip can be used for the waterblock. Hope this helps.

Only one small problem. My board is 12V and that digital strip is 5V. I really wanted the digital one.

Here is mine I did awhile back. Inspired by the OP.
I just made a fan wall to blow across entire card.

Ah yes, so I see it now. Did you get the led strip as well?

I had thought about getting that block as well, but when my Swiftech fit with it's new 5 dollar bracket, I was good to go.

Most? Pretty much everyone I heard from is into the lights now. RGB everything. 
I'll test it. Take a few shots, then turn it off. Not even sure how this stuff is going to hold up under condensation.

Hmmmm... maybe I’ll rethink... as long as not too complex, perhaps give it go.

After going through the effort, might as well bling it up.

Yes, the guys made me rethink that as well and now..... She is already glowing pretty bright. Just waiting on the gpu block now. I just threw some things on to make sure it all worked. Will get to making it look presentable over the weekend.

Thanks!
 
Yes I am, but it looks like you can using any led strip that is not longer than 200mm. And if so, that can still work.

Thanks for the advice. What is the length of the cable for the strip like? And what did you connect it to. I just need to get an LED strip now for my block.

I would guess it's as long or longer than 200mm. Looking at your mod rig page, it should reach on your motherboard. (Left bottom and top right corner)
It's connected to my motherboard. And matches the colors from it.
