Momentary toggle switch - Page 2

post #11 of 18

Is better.

Personally I would prefer a Lamptron or Bulgin vandal-switch, but if you have a tight budget then why not try this. Even a doorbell would be fine to repurpose.

You'll have one side that wont work I assume, (the "Always ON" side) since you'll only be connecting the momentary, but if that didn't bother you it would work alright.

I would assume so, but you would likely have to solder a 4 pin molex connector onto the strip if it didn't come with one, and if there's no current limiting (like a resistor) on the PCB that comes with the strip, then you'd have to add that too.

I'm curious, why do you shop from Ebay for this kind of thing? A nice name brand fan controller should only run you maybe 20-30$ and you'll have a place to return it if something does happen to go wrong if you buy from somewhere like newegg, amazon, or NCIX.
A fan controller can draw quite a bit of power, my Bitfenix Recon heats up on the front running just some low rpm NZXT fans, and the chips are pretty well heatsinked on it. I would not want to risk the fire hazard and chance of damage to other components by using one of those cheap 10$ Chinese controllers.
It's certainly worth the slightly higher initial investment to have something that will last, especially on a component as cheap as a fan controller.

Something like http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811992007 is still relatively cheap, warrantied, and a helluva lot more reliable.

Did you check out the link in my last post? The one with the NZXT fan controller? That one is analog, just 5 big slides that control the speed and no LCDs or lights to be seen, but the mesh on the front is hollow I believe, so you should be able to add your own LED lighting behind the controller if you so desired. It is a little bit more expensive, but again, it's sure to be higher quality than all of the un-named Ebay products there.

That's a good price for an LED strip that large, and those tend to be similar in quality no matter who you buy them from. I would just be careful if you were to run that off a fan controller and if possible, check the circuitry included with the strip to make sure that the current is limited through some means. Otherwise you might have some issues with either the LEDs burning out VERY fast, or a possible fire.
