Upgrade the power/reset switch?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm not happy with the Source 220 power button, it's loose and even though underneath it's flush it just doesn't feel right. I was thinking of getting this thing

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=24612

And I will need 2 of these I assume http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=27732

I was wondering is there anything else I'd need? Would I need to soldier them on or something? I've got little experience in that stuff =x

I also saw this thing which looked interesting to me http://product.madeinchina.com/DIY-Desktop-Power-Button-Switch-Module-for-PC-AC_13507762.shtml

A somewhat unique approach =/

What do you guys think? I have this Source 220 from NZXT, I liked the Source 210's buttons but this one has mesh and the power button will tip downward because there's nothing for it to rest against (the mesh bends inward).

Anyways minor question, thanks

get the prewired , it will save u time and hassle , i got some and never had a problem , they come in a ziplock plastic bag already prewired and ready to connect to a PC

derlin or no derlin , they are the same , if its for power and reset , get momentary switches

This is what you want to go with the vandal switch you decide on. The female spade connectors slip on to the connectors on the switch. Should be no need to solder.
