cold cathode/led light control box ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all. I'm about to buy a few cold cathodes and a couple of led light strips for example:

http://www.xoxide.com/nzxt-sleeved-led1m-blue.html
http://www.xoxide.com/cathode.html

Just to decorate up a little bit. Now my question is, would it be possible(well anything is possible) to hook all of these up to one convienent little box that i make that has switches such as maybe something like http://www.xoxide.com/ilu-mrec-rock-blue.html and that way i could control all the lights from one location and mount this box under my desk or something like that .

I'm pretty confident in my woodworking skills and i think i could make a nice little box for the switches, but my problem is wiring it all. is there any suggestions or similiar build logs i could look at for help?

Also i found these, http://www.coolerguys.com/840556092148.html, Would i be able to use those and take off that switch and re-solder the switches i want on there (for da bling factor) and maybe have all the molex connected to those switch enxtensions and running off of something like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16812706011

Idk sorry if this is confusing but id appreciate some help if anyone has anything to say haha

You answered your own question.

Once hitting the molex switch, it should shut off power to both items.

You can just clean up the messy wiring.
