[Official] Cooler Master HAF-XB Club! - Page 293

post #2921 of 10491
Just thought I'd post my front panel blue LED mod. Since Cooler Master has made the front panel IO available on their outlet here:

http://www.cmstore-usa.com/haf-xb-i-o-panel-oem/

I went ahead and bought one to play with. I replaced the HDD led with a clear blue 3mm and the power switch with a different switch that already had a blue led already in it, from this auction:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/10-illuminated-tactile-switch-push-button-12V-LED-6-6mm-with-4pin-ROHS-/171038388070

Pictures:


After I did all that, it turned out the switch was wired differently than the stock switch, so I had a choice...either snip two leads, or remount it rotated 90 degrees without soldering the LED leads in directly and wire them seperatly. I did the second option. It was mounted a little wonky in my first attempt anyway smile.gif

I also had to loosen the captive screws holding the power button on the front panel plate so it would push in far enough to hit the switch. I may look in to getting a cap for the switch or glue a piece of clear lexan to it. We'll see.

Cheers!

Plus I'm not sure the tubes would reach, or how neat it would look. the H100i would only bring you a couple degrees over the H80i

I second that...I have the Scythe Gentle typhoons 1850's....very quiet and excellent performance
