I wouldn't think so, but bear in mind that UV cold cathodes don't put out much light, and "regular" light often has the effect of dimming the UV reaction. Try a regular black light in a well-lit room and you'll see what I mean.

It will still work, but you'll have a stronger UV reaction without the blue. Perhaps a better idea is to add a second UV instead?

OTOH, I have a 12" UV cold cathode along the back edge of my case, and 2 blue LED case fans in the front, and it makes for a nice effect... but the crossover area is very small... just a small area under the hard drives. (think Antec case layout)

UV light does mix up with other lights, except blue and in some cases red. You can boost your UV-cathode with UV wire/strip. I prefer using it around my side window, where it puts out the most light. It depends a lot on the placing of the tubes. If put close to each other, the UV stands second to the brighter cathode, but if well placed, they can be a good mix,
