    Check Home Depot or Walmart. Look for the bulb that offers the highest "Lumens"

    Does anyone know the temp of the 98-131 LED kit for the mega towers? I bought some 5000k bulbs today and they just dont look as good as the mega kit

    Is that a halogen bulb in the picture? I found these LED version on eBay. its called E27 LED bulb.

    2for $12 shipped from China and it seems to works well as it spits out the whitest/coolest lighting that no halogen or cfl can.

    Like many of you, my monochrome display is only able to hold two bulbs. This means the lighting maybe insufficient. The LEDs being bright and white helps out a lot but the problem is
    they are not wide angled as I would love them to be. As you can see in the picture below, the ray of light is more focused. So, alternatively, I found these longer version and its called E27 par20. LED Replacement Bulb For Older Doublewides - veduvade.jpg
    It has a longer body stem so it's suppose to help out with a wider angle of lighting.

    The par20 is to my left and the reg E27 to my right. Notice the left side is getting a little tiny bit more light.

    Here are the specs and I couldn't see any temp rating:

    What type of socket u using? I have a plate on top of my tower so between this plate and the hole opening I only have 4" total. No wise cracks about the 4" please:)

    I ended up doing the 3000k 9w bulbs from Lowes.
    Im still torn because its not as white as the light on my Mega tower, but its a nice even pattern. If I could find a 4000k buld I would be happy. Its also one super LED, not three.

    Can anyone take a picture of the top panel that holds the bulb housing on a single tower?

    Well, this may sound odd... I had halogen bulbs in my doublewide and was going to go LED for more light. But, I wanted more over all light in the case and not a straight beam of light. So, for Ha..Ha's I had a long tube flurescent light housing off a fish tank top that fit perfect on the top of the case. The flurescent bulb gave me more over all light in the case....with a nice cool blue color. Looks NICE!
