hmmm thank you but I was wondering how the 2 are connected because there is the 12v input (male) and the "led strip" (female) molex's connected to the same thing on the top corner of the case do I just connect them together easy as that? B/C my psu doesn't come with a 'male' molex connector for the led strip. It's probably such an easy answer i'm just new to this. Do I connect the 12v input to my psu but then that would leave the female led strip not connected to anything?

I'm not getting you.... what is the other part of the 2 ?

You have this doohickey hanging there with a label on it that says LED strip.... you don't wanna be thinking about connecting it to your PSU. It is already powered.

If the LED lights are on in your case, then the LED switch already has power coming to it. If you connect that to your PSU, it will be "powered" from both ends .... why would you want to do that ? When you buy an LED strip, you will need to put a connector on the end of it.... that is what you will connect to that Molex.

LED-Enthoo.pdf 134k .pdf file

Things you'll need (assuming ya don't have a crimping tool):

(1) LED Strip - http://www.amazon.com/LED-Outlets-Meter-Black-Waterproof-Flexible/dp/B00E9N7SX6

(1) Molex Connector - http://www.frozencpu.com/products/1926/ele-94/FrozenCPU_ConnectRight_Standard_4-pin_Male_Connector_-_Black.html?tl=g51c387s999

(2) Pre-selleved Molex Wire- http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16208/wir-29/ModSmart_Kobra_SS_Pre-Sleeved_Molex_Male_to_Female_Extension_Wire_-_16_-_Black_WIRE-M16MF-BK.html?tl=g2c551s1693

Use the male end of the wire in the connector and solder the female end of the wire to ya LED strip (cut off) connector before soldering .

If ya already equipped for sleeving, then gran the connector and use ya own sleeving and wires.

Looks like the 290 wasn't the only thing that has a huge effect on market prices. Seems the Enthoo made a splash too.... last time I looked, the 900D was $350 .... now $270

Ah I think I finally understand so the led strip molex female plug is only used if I plan to buy some other type of led strip or something so if i'm just using the case default lights I don't have to worry about that cable at all, and the 12v molex male plug I would only plug into the psu if I need the power for the lights that I would have plugged into the led strip molex thanks I knew it was something simply +REP biggrin.gif

No...look at the PDF...the 12v input line is what sends power to all the LED's in the entire system.

You went from having two sources of power to having no sources of power smile.gif

PSU ==> 12V Input ==> LED Switch

LED Switch ==> PST Connector ==> FAN 1 LED
LED Switch ==>PST Connector ==>FAN 2 LED

LED Switch ==> PST Connector ==>FAN 3 LED
LED Switch ==> PST Connector ==>FAN 4 LED
LED Switch ==> PST Connector ==>FAN 5 LED
LED Switch ==> PST Connector ==>FAN 6 LED
LED Switch ==> PST Connector ==>[FAN 6 LED
LED Switch ==>Molex ==> LED Strip

The above is the basic wiring .... the stuff in bold is pre-wired. You need to do the underlined part ... the rest is optional

So I finally got around to installing some stuff in the case, only to find out the rear panel was badly bowed out. Luckily I was able to just grab the front and back and squeeze them together and it seems to have fixed it. Was about to be really angry.

Few little snippets of my test run with the case today before I order water parts.

What do you mean by "Bowed Out" is that pushed out or like bent outward?

Yes. It might be hard to see in the picture but the bottom of the expansion cards would touch the slot but the top would be 5mm or so away.

Are the stock fans the same as the PH-F140SP otherwise? I didn't realize they already had a fan available for purchase. I thought everyone has been waiting for them to release the fans so they can buy more? If they're different, is there something better about the stock ones that I would rather use them? One last question, are the stock ones good for using on radiators (SP)? I'm finally about to order everything for my loop and wasn't sure if I should harvest 3 of the stock fans for the 420 rad, or buy more Corsair SP's or buy another brand like Noiseblocker, etc. But if the PH-F140SP is just as good on radiators and just as quiet, etc as the stock ones, then I'll probably get some of those.
