CM690 Advanced II Led bar/stripes, Control via button, need advice

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hey guys!

I think I saw it here, a mod of the led fan button on the CM690, so that you can control led hardware with it.

I was thinking about buying this: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=72_107_834&products_id=21674

They are flexible, they can be place at the top of my case, front easily, so that I can get some light into my case. At first I was looking for this: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=72_107_835&products_id=25256 but there is not small one, that I could put under the front fan, to have a smal light just for the front. (I don't know either if one put vertically next to the HDD cage, would light a bit the front).

or this: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=72_107_840&products_id=3681

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=72_107_840&products_id=500

what ya guys would choose?



For the main question, with these led, what would I need to modify the wire from the top button (which has a fan connector) to be able to control all led?

Thanks smile.gif

I ordered one of these sets for my 690 II Advanced -> http://www.aquatuning.nl/product_info.php/info/p10254_Sharkoon-Cold-Cathode-Twin-wit---30cm.html

They're cold cathode and they have a PCI-cover with an on/off button on it

Those flexible led strips are pretty flimsy, bending them too much will cause them to not work all the time (or only in a certain position).
