Personally, I find soldering to be easier even though technically I didn't solder mine in place. Luckily for me the LED positive and ground wires were able to make good contact with the board so I simply bent the LED wires 90 degrees and electrical taped them down.
I have seen the rig with the broken off board with the LED strip and to me that's crazy! I've seen a couple rigs where guys put black electrical tape over the tiny, red, surface mounted LEDs on the fan controller to make them unnoticeable (instead of removing them with a soldering iron) and then had individual pre-wired LEDs running off of a molex connection taped down over the covered up red ones.
Just depends on how you want to do it and if you want some of the LEDs on I/O panel to still be functional.

Yes it is an Altec Lansing 251 5.1 Surround Speakers.
Probably it's already 7-9 years old but the sound quality is still kicking
I'm using my onboard sound card btw and I think it works pretty well
Thanks! I also thought of that before putting any leds into my pc, I don't want my PC to look like a disco ball or christmas too haha
I just saw your Rig and your Stryker's lighting just ate mine! awesome setup you got there!
Ah, a 5.1 sound system, that's better than mine. I'm using an old 4.1 stereo surround sound system that I bought back in '95 or '96. I used to use it to play Nintendo 64 and Playstation 2 games years ago. It was cool back then, even though it worked off of left and right channel audio. It's had better days, but I'm just amazed that the old system still works.
Thanks for the compliment on my lighting. Pretty soon, I'll be adding a bit of purple to go with this green. I'm trying to base my theme around the Decepticon General known as "Devastator". Here's one of my reference pics I'm using for inspiration:

The team's combined form of Devastator is brutality in its purest form—his sole purpose is to destroy anything and everything that gets in his way.
