You'd probably have to go with an SMD 3528 strip if you want an RGB strip that will fit. No?

Not all 3528 strips are 5mm wide, the average width of an LED strip is 8mm. The one that was originally posted is 5mm wide, and here is a version of it that is still active - [URL=http://Clicky Click]http://www.ebay.com/itm/3528-RGB-LED-Strip-5mm-Width-5M-270-LEDS-Flash-SMD-Light-Tube-Waterproof-12V-DC/231013741029?_trksid=p2047675.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D222002%26algo%3DSIC.FIT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D18348%26meid%3D2169308513147262889%26pid%3D100011%26prg%3D8402%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D5%26sd%3D370920695334%26[/URL]

5050 LEDs can produce white, whereas others cannot.

Assuming the 3828 is the proper width to fit it will a series of red, green & blue light and that is all. It will not give us the other colors. The 5050 SMD RGB will give us any color we want. That's why I'll probably get the 5050 RGB even though it won't work to replace the stock light strips. I just like the idea of being able to make whatever color I want.

This video was very helpful to me.

These led strips seem to have a weird 4 pin connector, does anyone know how they can be connected to a PSU?

Hey a Minnesotan, are you around the cities? I'm not putting wheels directly on the case, but I have my case sitting on a moving dolly lol

here is how I do it:

1. Take a molex to 2 pin or 3 pin connector (they normally come with fans)
2. Cut the fan pin off the molex to 3 pin connector, and figure out which wire is (-) and which one is (+) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
3. Out of the 4 wires on the LED strip, either the Black or the White wire will be (+), and the rest are for the (-). 1 for each of the 3 colors. (combine all 3 colors to get white)


You can also buy a 12V led strip controller, that will just have a red and black wire, that you can easily connect to a converted molex cable.


Extra Tips:

If you have a 12V adapter somewhere in the house use that to figure out your connection, as last thing you want is a short when plugging into the PSU. If you do not have a 12V adapter, you can use a 9V battery to figure out what wire is what. Always test your circuit, and wiring outside the case without the PSU (if possible) to avoid any damage.

As already said the are power, red, green & blue (RGB).

If you want white why not just buy white?

Power and remote control is cheap and has a simple plug socket for 12v hookup. Everything from simple direct wire to IR remote.

I wish I would of just bought the worlds biggest case the first time, instead of getting a slightly bigger case every time I ran out of room. mad.gif

My first really "expensive" case was a Thermaltake Xaser III.. 205.7x530.9x570.7mm and 23lbs. rolleyes.gif
Used it for many years with many modifications until I got my "smaller"

Define R2.. 207.4x458x521.2mm and 27.5lbs. smile.gif

Both of them had/have 4x castor bases under them. tongue.gif

Now I get the Enthoo Primo and of course it has to have castors too. biggrin.gif
