It wouldn't turn on at all so I presume that it has a safety cut out if you don't have the mother board connected or my PSU has suddenly become dead!

Looking at the molex adaptor that came with the fan, it only has two wires connected the yellow and black, so this would indicate that both the LED and fans runs off 12V.

What do I need to do now I know that 5V from the case switch is not enough? Wish I hadn't started this now!

Yeah you can't run a psu without the motherboard attached...it's a safety feature

Ok it's safe to say you have two options in your diagram if you follow where the molex plug is providing power via the red wire on the molex plug...you now need to cut that as you will no longer need the 5v feed and replace it with a 12v feed from the yellow wire on the molex plug... Fairly straight forward just one wire needs swapped.

The other option is to install a relay so you gain a 12v circuit as well as maintain the 5v circuit...alittle more complicated and you probably will not need that for your setup.

Unfortunatly I am typing this now on my iPhone as I am in bed at the moment (how's that for dedication to OCN and CMSSC ). But if you are still confused please feel free to post that and I will draw up a diagram in the morning for you.

Phew! I thought something might be wrong!

With regards to your suggestion about swapping the yellow wire and the red wire, I think I know what you mean, but before I go ahead and cut anything a diagram may help.

Many thanks for your help on this. I am now off to bed too! I have spent so many hours just looking up fans and wiring that I need to rest my tired brain.

I look forward to seeing your suggestion tomorrow and finally getting this sorted once and for all!

Cheers

i'm looking forward to seeing more diagrams, these wiring diagrams of the scout will really help me in my future plans..

i just got my storm scout yesterday. i would post some pics, but my cables look like crap (antec tpq-850 is hard to work with). I've ordered $57 in braided extensions from frozencpu so I should have pics up in a few days.

Great ... Looking forward to the pics.. I know the stuff your talkin about. That is gonna make it look good. Welcome to the CMSSC.

I have finished some diagrams using ye old ms paint (dont laugh at my weak skills with paint)



as you can see I have simply moved the red wire on the female molex plug to the yellow 12v side of the plug. I recommend you use a paper clip and simply pull out the pins from the plug and change its location to this image, it would look much neater and will also guarantee a solid connection with no risk of shorting out....google "how to sleeve cables" and there will be videos on how to remove pins if you are not sure.




Now if you want to run a 12v lighting circuit whilst maintaining the 5v circuit you will need to invest in a solid state relay. This device will allow the 5v circuit to switch on the 12v circuit whilst keeping the two circuits separate and as it is placed on the output of cm storm scout lighting switch it can all be controlled by the press of the magic button.

I have also done a simple circuit to show how you would typically connect this to the current system.


you would also need to purchase a couple of extra resistors to help prevent and L.E.D's from blowing.

I hope that clears the confusion and let me know if my diagrams are wrong/don't make sense.

Looking forward to those pics! Sleeving makes a PC look sooooo good!

Hi Darkstar,

Thank you so much for those diagrams, it really makes sense to me now. I think the bottom diagram is a bit of overkill for me at the moment (especially with my limited knowledge), although it will be worth keeping for future reference.

With regards to the top diagram, it seems like a really simple swap, just move the red wires from the red side into the yellow side and that's it. Not wanting to complicate things further, but if I wanted to add just one more LED on/off fan to the set-up what would I need to do with regards to the wiring? Would I be able to just tap into one of the new fans wiring and "piggy back" off that (as in the pic below) or would I need a separate resistor to wire in?

Many thanks again,

Jamie
