I am looking to get this rad http://jab-tech.com/XSPC-RS360-BLACK...r-pr-4204.html

In the 922, the top panel LED switch is a double pole, double throw switch. So if you look that up on net you'll find information on how those switches are set up (DPDT).

So there are two rows of 3 pins. I'll make an ASCII Diagram (Fannnncy). The "o" represents the pins and the 123AB is so I can identify the pins in my explanations...

1 2 3
o o o A
o o o B

So the middle pins (2A and 2B) are the center main connection. The position of the switch determines which pole to the left or right of "2" that gets connected. There are two isolated rows here, A and B (double pole) and the switch position determines which way the center pin is connected (double throw). When you look at the current switch wiring in the 922, the fan LED on/off control is connected this way (X represents the connected poles):

1 2 3
X X o A
o o o B

So when you click the switch, the connection goes between 1A and 2A. When you turn the switch "off", the connection is now 2A to 3A (or open).

What I did with my case... I took the switch leads from the transformer switch from my cathodes (the PCI plate switch) and soldered them to 1B and 2B. Now, my fan LEDs and my cathodes are both controlled from the same switch using the open pole that was available on it.

I don't know what the power rating is on the switch for what current flow it can handle so I don't know about running any loads through the switch itself (like a 12V lead). It might not be big enough to handle a lot of power through the switch. If you need to switch a heavy load via power, I recommend using a proper switch that is rated for the voltage and current flow you need as I don't think this switch is big enough to handle a lot.

Hope this helps

Thanks, I am definitely going to buy it then.

wow great explanation. +rep
so with the bolded part.. technically i could wire 2 different colored LEDs or even "dual color" LEDs?
blue LED + to 1a, - to 2a
red LED + to 3a, - to 2a
that way i press the button and it switches colors?

I hear you. I can't stand it when people do that. Especially with rads. That's what these HAF cases are for.

With the way the fans were built, it has to close the circuit on both leads to turn the LED circuit on. There are a couple ways to do what you describe.

If you have two fans with the switch circuit in them (like the stock 922 red fan)... put the first fan LED switch leads on the 1A - 2A pins and the second fan on the 2B - 3B pins. That way, when the computer is on, you either have your red fan lit or your blue fan lit.

Now if you were using the switch to run low power through which I think would be fine with handling an LED only circuit... you could do this (I'm rotating the layout to make it easier to draw ASCII style yeahhhhhhh

Ground--<--Red LED---Resistor--- 1B

+5V------------->---------------------- 2B

Ground--<--Blue LED--Resistor---- 3B


In this case... we are making a circuit for power to go through the middle pole and depending on switch position, it either lights the red or the blue LED. It is supplying power to that LED through the proper sized resistor (current limiter) so you need to put in the right size resistor depending on the LED you use (Handy LED Resistor Sizing Tool). This would be another way to leverage the existing switch up there. Instead of it being an on/off switch... it is now a color selector.

Oh and I put the resistor after the switch and not on the Voltage in side because the Red and Blue LEDs typically have different forward voltage ratings so you need to size them appropriately.

EDIT: Like I mentioned before, you could probably run actual power through the switch like off the 12V or 5V leads but I don't know what the current rating is for the switch (how much load amperage it can safely switch and keep isolated). If you are only using it for LEDs you are probably ok but I wouldn't run a lot of stuff through this little switch. This is why I only wired in existing switch circuits from other devices and not directly to a power source (the switch from the CCFL kit and the existing 922 Fan LED on/off control)
