I bought a total of 10 feet of it and still have 3.5 left over I would estimate, and I ran both the top and front to a 2 pin fan connector so I could quick disconnect it if needed when taking it apart

When I did mine, I just soldered in wires to jump around the pegs.

I used 3 feet for my top.

I wanted it all the way across with no dead spots, mine is just more labor intensive

Hey could you give measurements....for front strips and top....it would make it way easier to order from him. I really like the look of the red LED and am gonna go that route I think. Did you run power to the top panel switch???
Thanks Jake
It turns on and off with the LED light buttons on the front I just used a fan LED connector to run it off of. Still well within power spec so its not overloading it

That was my followup..so you can power the lights on with +/-? Or can you change the brightness? Either is fine..just curious. Beats painting any day

you could give them less power and they will be less bright, i just have them full 12v max brightness
post #4955 of 12482
I don't mind full brightness.. My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives. I love the possibilities.

Update on my storm trooper: Got my H100 and fixed up the wiring to the best I can. Nothing fancy compared to you guys, just a stock build. Haven't got lights or extra fans or anything. Anyway, here are the pics:

Here are the "before" pics:






And here are the "after" pics:

/\ one thing I would do is run the 8 pin power cable behind the motherboard tray. The case should have come with an extension cable if needed
post #4958 of 12482
Was about to say the same thing..that ATX cable across the front is killing me. Other than that, looking good.

Here's what I'm working with for the moment..needs some cleaning up. Note the obvious lack of another fan on the radiator because of that blasted board..

Yeah I know, I have no idea what to do what that friggin 8-pin as I didn't see any extension cable with the power supply. I'll check again but I distinctly remember when I first built the rig that there was no extension cable included..Haven't had the chance to look for extension cables aftermarket yet, but I the 8-pin is my last problem I think.
