Thanks for the input, although this isn't quite what I'm doing as I am replacing the stock fans and just need to tap into the led switch on the case. The power on the fans and leds will be handled by the PSU and motherboard.

Any other input on this?

Having had a better look at the connections, I can see that there is a red and black wire running from the rear LED fan and the front LED fan that merge into a set of green + white and red+black wires, these then go directly to the switch with a couple of resistors on the green+white cable.

It looks like I can just snip the black and red wires from the existing fans and connect them to my switch wires coming from the new fans. Is this correct?

Also if I wanted to add a 3rd LED fan with the same control from the front panel can I just add to the existing wires and daisy chain without any issues? The only reason I mention this is because of the resistors in place for just two of the LED fans, if I add a third fan to the mix will the resistors cope?

Many thanks,

Jamie

that's true, the 24pin aren't in the best place, i can't find a way to hide those cables... in the next motherboard i will take care of this detail.

Just to update I have created a very crude wiring diagram for the fans on this case. Can anyone help with my original request?

Do you know what voltage L.E.D's you are going to be adding? as I think the switch is only 5v, So if you got 12v L.E.D's you are going to have to wire a relay in paralleled with the output of the light control to get both the original 5v system and the 12v system to be operated with one switch.

Is that the idea you had in mind?....sorry if it is not, your last couple of posts where confusing kinda confusing to me.

Edit: one resistor is fine for a few L.E.D's wired in series...they have to have at least a 1k resistor in the circuit otherwise they would blow the lights. so you "should" be able to add to it with no problems.

.......I hated electrical studies at uni.....so glad i only have to study mechanical now

I'm pretty confused as well so that probably doesn't help my explanations.

To put it as simply as I can, I have removed the Scout's two LED fans and intend to replace them with different LED fans. These fans have their own switch to turn the LEDs off so I just need to wire the two wires from the switch on the fans into two wires on the diagram in order to keep the LED on/off functionality of the Scout case. My question is which wires do I need to tap into?

As far as I can tell I can snip the red and black wires (as in the picture below) attach them to the switch wires on the new fans and keep the LED on/off function of the fans. I am ignoring the power to the fans at the moment, I will sort that once I know this will work.

ok I think I kinda possibly maybe see where you are coming from now.....that should be fine as you are not adding any additional lighted fans to the system. In effect all you would be doing is replacing the switch that is supplied with the fans with the switch from the storm I/O panel.

you DO however need to find out what voltage the new leds require as if it is more then the original storm fans lights you will need to wire in an additional relay to the output of the storm light switch... the requirements should be printed on the box the fans are supplied with? if not maybe on the sticker on the fan????

post the results of the voltages and I will draw up a diagram of how you would need to wire up the relay if it is needed.

hope that clears the mist alittle

It would technically work to tap into the red and black LED wires, but you must take into account whether or not the new LEDs require a 5V or 12V source. The way the switch in the scout is wired, it will only provide 5V.

Edit: I didn't see that darkstar already answered the question.

I am having real difficulty saying for certain what the voltage on the LEDs is. On the back of the fan it just states DC 12V 0.40A, now this could just be referring to the fan's power, but as it only has one power lead unlike the Scout case fans that are split, maybe both the fan and the LEDs are 12V?

Is there any test I can do to find out? I'm sure I have a volt meter or something similar, can I use this to find out? You'll have to excuse my ignorance on this, I haven't studied electronics since I was at school!

you gotta cut the blocks off the fans anyway right? find a spare molex plug on your psu the just touch the wires on the molex plug pins . keep black to black and then try red to red....if it doesn't light up try red(fan) to yellow(molex plug) red is 5v to my knowledge and yellow is 12v.

then let us know which one it lights up on.

BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO SHORT ACROSS MULTIPLE PINS as this will trip your psu out and could ruin your fan.

also dont hold the lights on there for too long as could blow the leds.

also do 5v before trying 12v.

EDIT: thats how i would do it....its worked out pretty well for me so far
