Nope. The Spectre LED fans are special

Another BitFenix first, Spectre LED Fans features on-the-fly LED on/off switching. Simply connect Spectre to either the BitFenix Hydra Pro Fan Controller or Survivor Chassis, and turn your Specter LEDs on and off with a press of a button. Spectre can also work as a regular LED fan with jumper-selectable on and off.

So how would I modify it? I would probably need to use two inputs on the recon per fan, one for led and one for fan is that right? I can then daisy all fan outputs to one input and all led outputs to another input. Sounds about right?

The Spectres have a separate 2-pin cable for the LEDs. You can strip off the plastic heads and then figure out how it works based on that tongue.gif

At least this time they didn't gouge your wallet for their CRAP smile.gif

I think you forgot 2 OS':

Windows 95 -> Windows 98... Windows 2000... Windows ME...Windows XP -> Windows Vista... Windows 7 -> Windows 8!

IMHO, The only decent OS out of those were Win98, Win XP, and Win 7 biggrin.gif

if not so inclined or if it isnt too impractical, try something like this:

I don't think that fits the bill... I'd be glad to be proved wrong though

I don't want to start a debate on here about Windows 8, but I don't think it justifies the abuse. Sure the metro thing is different, even I'm not a fan and the lack of a traditional start menu is somewhat annoying, but those facts aside Windows 8 is very similar to Windows 7 and pretty much resembles it once you strip out the metro and get some form of traditional start menu installed. From personal experience using Windows 8 there are performance benefits seen when benchmarking and my NAS connection is faster.

I have actually used that in my Cosmos II case since I have 9 Bitfenix spectre pro fans going. The led's are on constantly but it does work!

nah no debate. I am just saying based on Windows history and my own personal experience, Win 8 has left a somewhat sour taste in my mouth biggrin.gif Yes it is very different and I will agree it is much like Win 7 in some aspects, but with the issues I faced even on a clean install, I will stick with what works right now . Of course everyone else's experience will differ from my own; some good and others not so! Its a buggy OS that will go in the way Vista did before MS will come out with an OS that can be a more justifiable experience for those who like the metro style of Win 8!

Picking up the Prodigy White in about 4 hours, can't wait. Got the rest of my parts up and running already (out of the case) Will post some pictures tomorrow when there's sunlight and everything to show it off.

Have to say I agree. I really don't mind Windows 8 at all. I've managed to get it most set up identical to Windows 7 (start panel included). So all Im really getting from it are decreased system requirements and improved speed. Sure it's not revolutionary, but its not a travesty!

To keep things on topic, just ordered PSU, RAM (Vengeance low profile RAM should be more widely used!!) and fans, all Corsair. Getting things started soon!

Question on front rad placement keeping odd bay intact.

Would a 180mm rad fit without removing odd? And would the 180.2 rad be better than a single 200mm rad that would work in this case?
