Gigabyte G1 Gaming GeForce GTX 960 / 970 / 980 LED Swap - Page 2

post #11 of 546
I think I found them. Page 164 of the mouser catalog. Look at part D or H on the left hand page.

The 2.1x6mm comes in red, orange, yellow, blue and green (you'll probably use these). The 1.6x2mm comes in green, red, yellow and blue. You'll want a very fine tip soldering iron.

I have a Newark catalog somewhere around here. I'll let you know if I find some part numbers.

not sure, ill have to take a look at them and get back to you. i was thinking of seeing how the size of a side mounted 0603 smd led is compared to the current leds on there. not even sure if theyll play nice with the resistors though

Yes they should have just made it rgb to begin with. but i have already contacted them asking what size and number the leds are and if i can have or buy another windforce peice thumb.gif

it really is great that you can do this without any heatsink moving. and THANKS! i can always use the rep so maybe one day ill be able to post in the classifieds biggrin.gif lol

i currently have a blue led case but i am getting tired of it and want something a little more elegant and modern. so im changing all of my antec 1200 leds to white, sleeving all my cables and i want to make this beautiful card match with a nice subtle, white led glow

yep thats what im doing too lol. they really should have made it rgb and honestly probably wouldve sold so many more cards haha

thanks ill check it out! unfortunately im looking for white but regardless ill still check it out for the sake of other people that want to change the leds. and yeah i had to deal with a lot of smd leds when i changed the ring of light on xboxs and the controllers back in the day tongue.gif

No guarantee, but I think they might fit. Spec sheet says it needs 2.2mm between the solder pads.

In fact, try this search: http://www.mouser.com/Osram-Opto-Semiconductor/Optoelectronics/LED-Lighting/LED-Emitters/Standard-LEDs-SMD/Micro-SIDELED-Series/_/N-b1bb1?P=1z0ysw2Z1z0yr4hZ1z0yt3xZ1yv68r7Z1z0j7bw

I'll try searching later but that one looks exactly like and the size seems extremely close!

I purchased these previously for another mod project. Looks like the ones you need. (May be a bit more difficult to solder than the ones you'd be taking off.)

Oh nice I'll check those out. They do look a bit more difficult but I think I could get it. I'll search eBay and grab some thanks!

Subbed, glad someone started paving the way.

I'm sure many of us would prefer a different color scheme to better match our builds.

Quite a number of people interested on reddit too.
