HAF-X LED switch broken!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well I finally got my MDPC sleeving so I had planned to finish any other mods I had in progress when I was sleeving. One of those projects was routing all of my CoolerMaster Fans to the LED switch so they would all turn on and off at the push of a button.

I had all the connections set and soldered but when I started up the PC and pushed the button nothing lit up. At first I thought it was the soldering, but before I decided to rip everything apart I decided to look under the I/O panel to see if the connections were still connected.

Opened it all up and of course, one of the connections was loose with no hope of putting it back together (I tried to solder on the little piece of metal that was sticking out of the switch with the wire in an attempt to mend the problem but that was merely a futile attempt).

Now I am out a switch aswell as three fans equipped with LED's that I cannot take advantage of. Does anyone know of a replacement switch for the HAF-X and I also wanted to ask if anyone knew a way that I could wire the CoolerMaster LED fan wires so they could atleast work when I turn on the computer?

Thanks in advance!

contact coolermaster, they are pretty good in the customer service department.

Pretty sure it's a toggle switch, could probably just bridge it to make it turn on.

Contacted them and they told me it wasn't under warranty and that I would need to order it from the store, but they don't have it in the store!

Ahh god damnit.
