I'm not sure what I've got hooked up wrong, any ideas?
It's possible that

1. You have a defective switch.
2. You are not pressing the switch down far enough (Try pressing the button with a long and slim appliance and see if you can get it to cycle. If not you have a defective switch and if you call cooler master they will probably send you a new switch, if you need one.

Note if all the fans light up then you dont have any wire issues.

My stealth switch went bad somehow. I ran the wires to a terminal block, and hooked my cathode kit up to that block...but they wouldn't light up when switched. I ran some tests on the wires coming from the stealth switch and it was only outputting a few volts rather than 12+.

I'm going to drill out that stealth switch a little bit to fit a slightly larger on/off button, and will use that instead. Having the ability to turn the auxiliary lighting on and off is a definite plus, not too worried about the LEDs on the R4 fans. Rewiring them to power the LEDs separate from the fan motors is way too much of a hassle, and adds a lot more wiring when I'm aiming for less wiring in here, those terminal blocks get rid of a TON of wiring and plugs.

Here's mine-





I made a female molex plug with yellow/black wire only. It plugs in to one of the male molex rails on the psu, the other end of the female plug wiring is attached to the terminal block. I then jumped the yellow/black wires across the top of the terminal towards the left to make the whole terminal "hot". The bottom of the terminal is where my 6 R4 fans and 12" dual cathode kit are connected. I had up to 9 R4 fans and two cathode kits installed on this block powered by that one molex rail...and I still didn't hit any limits. The PSU is a Hiper Type R II 880w(1040max).

As you can see it is a 6-post terminal block. Two posts make one power connection(positive and ground). So basically what it did was turn one molex rail in to three molex rails...and allowed me to delete a bunch of wiring and plugs. In my opinion this is the BEST mod you could do to any case, and is essential if you want to do a very awesome wire-tuck.

Since I still have some mods to do, as well as some part upgrades, I'll hopefully be able to offer a detailed walk-through on the terminal block mod and a few other mods I've done and will be doing. There's still a long list of ideas, just don't have the time for them right now.

The mods themselves cost next to nothing...I spent about $20 at allelectronics.com(terminal blocks, male/female insulated spade connectors, zip ties, wire stripper/crimper) which is a very awesome place to order from, and about $40-50 on a nice dremel kit + multimeter from wal-mart. I may be doing some wire-tucks and terminal block mods for a few friends and customers...so the money I spent will be paid back easily. The stuff I got from all-electronics will last through several case wire-tucks(500 of each connector, like 1k zip ties, and like 5 terminal blocks), and the tools from wal-mart will last however long.

It's actually really easy to do once you get started. Look at the first page of this thread, Enigma's 2nd or 3rd post...he has a list of quotes and mods, and one is a youtube video. That is 1 of 5 videos some guy made showing how to do the terminal block mod. I watched all five before doing mine, and it helped quite a bit.

Nope I don't hear a click. I've pressed it in really hard making sure that it wasn't stuck or anything, and I wasn't sure if it was suppose to click or not, but since everyone is asking me if it clicks I guess it's suppose to. I'm pretty sure the switch itself is just broken then.

Yes your right. It should click about 2mm down. if it doesn't you have a dud switch.



Also you can check this page. NOTE: Do not Purchase Momentary contact switch. That is what you have now. You want locking press on and press off switches in the 1mm. to 1.6 mm size range. 1.2 mm is the best for this application.

Best Example IMO

hey guys, I know this question has nothing to do with the scout and I apologize but I trust your opinions most. I'm converting a bunch of songs in itunes right now and my cpu is staying roughly around 50% load @ 45c but it keeps having random cpu temperature spikes as high as over 60c! I don't know what this means if something is wrong or what?
