Which LEDs on Define S ?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i just wanted to know, as i'm doing a kind of build / Worklog on my case for a simplistic design, i'll need to do a LED swap on my Define S case.

But as far as i'm concerned, every "How to" things i've found were about previous Fractal Design cases like the R4. And i asked on these topics. are Define S and R4 LEDs are the same, i got no answers..

So i hope that somebody here could help me, it seems to be a rather popular mod to do.. thumb.gif

I am building a Ryzen computer atm, and I've been looking into this (for me) novelty of having RGB LED lighting, and in that regard, I have been charmed by the LED strips that are magnetic, which doesn't rely on glue as an adhesive.

On other noteworthy aspect to LED lighting (which I by far am no expert on), is that Asus for example, have LED lighting built into their motherboard with its own software, this gimmick has been called "Aura".

Btw, I found your thread because I was trying to find some information about ultra violet LED strips. This had me wondering if that ultra violet light is true ultra violet (uses more power afaik), making white'ish things in the dark light up a lot more than darker colors, which could look interesting in a case with some white cables and whatnot I am thinking. I learned recently that one can actually buy decent flashlights with light near the ultra violet spectrum, but only the expensive models are usable for say police like work, like checking money. And the cheap flashlights doesn't have "real" UV light.

Huh.. I guess that's fine for you then, but maybe i made a mistake discribing what informations i was looking for but, i just wanted to know what are the diameter of the Front LEDs in the define S because i wanna change the color from blue to.. maybe white smile.gif

i ended up using leds for the buttons of my previous carbide 200R, which was a 3mm led and a 5.7.2mm led (also from the carbide 200R) which i sanded down to make it fit in the button.

i sanded the socket, to make the light more kinda diffused using 240g sandpaper.
