BitFenix Prodigy - power led change

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm starting to mod the BitFenix Prodigy case and I thought if it is possible to change those power and HDD LEDs to a different color?
What kind a model are those LEDs?

I haven't got my case yet and that's why I'm asking it from here.

I think, I would need to make more modifications to the circuit board, cause if I try to replace the original button to a vandal one, I need to cut the old circuit board (what I want to avoid 'cause the warranty) or I need to make a completely new one by my self.
And I definitely dont want to drill any new holes any where. biggrin.gif

Was thinking about doing this too. Change the blue ones to green smile.gif

They are simply a differently shaped LED, rectangular. They stand off from the board they're mounted to. You could use any T-1 sized LED instead, just mount it closer to the board. Unsolder the existing ones, solder in new ones without the standoffs. Then you should cut/file/grind a couple small pieces of clear plastic to fill the original holes and act as a light pipe to the new LEDs.

I'm thinking of modding the LEDs in my wife's Prodigy to pink. When I get my new CNC machine in a couple weeks I may mill out some light pipes.
