Hey Guys, long time reader, first time poster.
I just got my Scout, and in my old case i have some cathodes i want to move over, but i would like to use the case's built in button, rather then a rocker switch like i had before.
Ive read the wiring diagram and think I understand how the switch works when you want to put in a few things, but all i want to do is hook up 1 inverter to it..
I was wondering if you could look at these before and after drawings and let me know if what im thinking would actualy work?
This is how my system is currently setup.
The PSU is connected to the molex from the switch to provide the power to the fans LEDs (I only have 1 LED fan connected). The second fan connector is currently not in use.
The Cathode kit, is now connected to the PSU directly, with the rocker switch breaking the 12v connection to turn it on and off.
What i am thinking is doing this...
I would remove the rocker switch from the cathode setup, and the molex connector completely, then just throw on a FAN connector to the end, and connect it directly to the extra LED wires i have for a second fan thats not in use.
Would that work?
I guess what im unclear on, is if the wires leading from the switch that would normaly connect to a LED fan, are carrying 12v or not? if they are, i think i could power the cathode from it with no problem since thats 12v...
Any help would be great, im really new to modding, and really just understand the basics of wiring..
