Well short answer: The wiring was correct, however the LED strip broke.
Yellow (+12V) to red, and black (Ground) to black was fine. I tested the LEDs on my old PC and found them really great. Great brightness control and colours with the remote.
However the sticky side of the strip was very weak, so I added some of my own tape. I pressed hard everywhere to make sure it stuck inside the PC case. (I taped it around the case).
But when I turned on the PC.. no lights. I removed the strip, rewired it to another molex connection and tested it again.. still not working.
I guess I probably pressed too hard when I was trying to get it to stick inside the PC case? I dunno... Anyway I'm quite annoyed because I waited 2 weeks for this thing to arrive and spent hours working on it now for nothing. Damn.
Anyone know why it might have broken? Or maybe it was the adapter?Edited by RichiRichX - 8/1/13 at 5:47pm
