Hey everyone, I am redoing my latest build and want to put my NZXT Hue+ to better use. I currently have two strips connected to channel one and nothing on channel two. I am swapping my all-in-one water cooling setup for a custom loop and I am planning on using the XSPC Raystorm Pro. Not content with the lighting provided I am trying to plan out a different approach.

Take two 5 mm discrete RGB LEDs and wire them up in a similar pattern to the one that comes with the Raystorm Pro. First I will need to drill out the 3 mm hole in the mount to 5 mm to accommodate the RGB LED. Then instead of wiring the two LEDs to a 5.25" power connector, wire them directly a connector that attaches to channel two of the Hue+. Even though the NZXT Strips are not marked as such, I am assuming that the strips themselves are wired as common anode and will get similar common anode discrete LED. My question is about the pinout of the NZXT Hue+ and whether or not common anode assumption is correct? I would also like to know what value dropping resistor I would need for two RGB LEDs hooked up in series to the NZXT and how the circuit would look.

Can anyone point me in the correct direction? Thanks in advance.
