LED issue was thx to mobo /mobo manual (ECS -_-).
Turns out the PWR & HDD pins are switched pos for neg, then the power switch is labeled backwards in the manual. Idiots.
All's well now, and I'll definitely be modding out those LEDs for softer red ones anyway. This thing is insanely bright.
Haha, I understand man. I've seen my fair share vague boards over the years.
You'll want 3mm Low Intensity LEDs'. You can get them in a two pack from Radio Shack for less than $3, I believe that's what I paid for mine back when I did the change. Even featured the lights in my Vid.
Instead of RMA'ing the fan I suggest getting a 140mm in LED flavor. If you're gonna be spending money for shipping might as well save yourself the aggravation and just chalk it up to shipping damage. I kind of wish that Cases were not shipped with fans etc mounted in place. Should just have them boxed up in a box and taped into open area to protect them better. well anyway you can get a reasonable price on 140s' from most any place.
