new build wiring issue

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i just got a new xspc h2 case, and with all that new room im trying to add alot of lighting. first up is this led strip i bought. http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=72_107_836&products_id=32238 but it was a return that had the wires cut. got it cheap. it has 2 wires, red and black. i want to wire it to this.http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=60_374_376&products_id=33008 its a 3 pins lighted rocker switch. 2 positive pins and one ground pin. how would i wire that up to the rocker switch?
next is these led's http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=72_107_837&products_id=1845 i got 6 of them for my watercooling resi and blocks. i want to wire it to this http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=60_392&products_id=30361 the problem with that i see is they are all 3 pin connectors on the pcb, and the leds are 2 pin. is it possible to just plug them in to 2 pins on the pcb, but use the same 2 pins for the power to? and thats the other question, is how to power it. it dont have a regular pin out for power. i would have to use a 2 or 3 pin molex like whats on the leds. how can i wire power to it?

For your first problem wire the red from the led strip to the ACCY connector on that switch and black from the led strip to the copper ground on that switch then wire the copper ground from the switch to black on a molex plug and 12V Power on the switch to yellow on a molex


As for the leds you could easily use the fan strip no problem, just plug them all in making sure each one is plugged into it the same way then make sure that to connect power to it you get the corresponding pin

For an example see the attached picture (Pay close attention to the orrientation of connectors and pcb tracks on both my picture and the actual board you receive they may not be exactly the same)
