Question about Phanteks P400 w/ Phanteks RGB strip

I have a customer that wants a Phanteks P400 case and he also wants to add an RGB strip. I've read that the Phanteks RGB strip will work with the P400/P400s even though it says that it only works for the Enthoo Luxe.

My question is; has anybody ordered this case AND this RGB strip, and if so, did it hook up to the RGB connector on the case or did it not? Should I just go with a different RGB strip?

Thanks!

the strips work fine with the P400 and Evolv ATX glass. those cases include a built in connector for the LED strips.

Seems to work fine yes.

I found a build using the P400 and the Phanteks RGB Strips http://pcpartpicker.com/b/TBM8TW.

Have a look and dont forget to comment and +1 the build heheh!

Before you ask, no it is not my build but seems like a rational thing to do no?

I'm sure I read somewhere the strip is just common or garden 5050 with a specific connector on the end which means the Phanteks strip is at least 10 times the going rate for 5050 on ebay.

You could easily solder the strip to the connector or source the right one on ebay to make it 'factory'. I've got a metre left over from backlighting my tv so am going to use that if my lad decides he wants internal lighting too.
