HAF X led switch/leds

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I want to use the led switch that came with my case to control all my leds in my case. The leds I want to control (on/off) are 4 fans of leds (about 4 each) and 2 led tubes (about 20 leds each). The fans can all be supplied with 12v power and so can the led tubes. The switch was designed (i am guessing) to support the front leds of one fan. Can this switch handle that many leds? IF so, what would its limit be? Thanks.

LEDs dont take a lot of power. Very minimal actually. You just need to know where the on/off section is to it.

Mostly trial and error if you don't have a multimeter.

But as to your fans you would have to re-wire all your fan leds as in removal of the original leds from your fans onto your switch.

I dont own a HAF-X so im not sure if the switch already has a resistor in the line. Since you cant directly power the LEDs via 12v or 5vline.

There is no resister in the switch as far as I can tell. I do have a multimeter, I just haven't used it in a decade so I cant remember how. How do you propose I use it to check?
