How to Install 3528 lights to a case?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys just wondering what I would need to install lights to my case using a PSU. Would like to also have an on off switch or something. I have a some unused fan controllers that I wouldnt mind stripping for parts or connecting to the lights. I just bought 5 meters of this http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=400493231736&ssPageName=ADME:L:OC:US:3160.
If there is a solderless way that would be great. Budget is about 20$
If no solderless way what power solder will be sufficient for light modding?

its silly easy.

what i did is pick up a wireless remote from superbrightleds.com.

something like this but with a female connector on it (my led strip came with a male connector already installed)

i cannot find the exact model that i bought off them for my setup

sacrificed a fan for its molex plug. spliced the leads together. hooked everything up, and wala.

Thanks I checked on ebay and found a switch that looks exactly like that but im going diy with it and will be soldering (friend is doing it) to a molex. Dont want a bulky power adapter in my case.
Thanks!!!
