With respect to the flash and dance, DFI were probably the first to come out grand scale with fluorescent components by using expansion slots impregnated with fluorescent dies and matching rounded cables to complete the picture. Needless to say that getting the effects still requires the use of a fluorescent light source, preferably black-light to bring out the glow-in-the-dark characteristics. Likewise, fluorescent dies are extremely short-lived, unless protected by antioxidants the life span is in the order of days at max but as long as there are enough of the LuciferYellow - derivatives incorporated into the plastic mold, chances are that the ghastly glow will last at least a few weeks. By then, the enthusiasm of staring at PCI slots and the same old cables will fade, along with the intensity of component visibility in an absence of light..
