LOL!!!! thumbsupsmiley.png

well i had the led strip in there for around a month already, but it was just static whilst i had 4 cathodes connected to my sound controller, so i ditched two cathodes to make room for connecting the led strip to the controller instead biggrin.gif was super easy too..

i just cut the plug off of the connector that was in the back of the inverter for the two cathodes i removed, then i stripped the wires, then on the led strip molex there's also a 4 pin female pass through, so i just put the wires into that securely(on the 12v and ground pins) and all works well n stuffs.

i actually came here with the intention of posting a quick video i made lastnight of it, and also to ask a question, which i'll do in a separate post methinks smile.gif

Video though
Tis far more responsive and brighter than say.. the video in my signature that has the 4 cathodes and no led strip at all tongue.gif

Here's the question mentioned in the post above this one anyways lol..

I want to connect all 8 led's from the two stock fans for my scout to the sound controller, baring in mind that i can connect any 12v pre made set of led's to the outputs on the sound controller, and that it only has two outputs, so i'd be losing the other two cathodes til i can around to wiring a switch up for them to be wired to a molex etc, but based on a very distant and fragile memory, i believe the led's that are on the stock fans are 5v? what would i need to do/buy to add into the circuit so i don't fry them? thanks in advance n stuffs smile.gif

thanks biggrin.gif i got my controller off ebay like a year ago now, and it's been perfect, you can find them very very cheap with the molex cut off by some guy for modding onto a car or something, just put a molex back on and your good to go, anyways link below to the controller tongue.gif

It sounds like you don't mind doing a little splicing and cutting, so here's my idea. Those LEDs should be 5v. Each LED likely has a resistor on one leg or the other. Cut that resistor off and solder in a 470ohm resistor on each LED That's it. The 470ohm will be good for 12v. If you want to get into some real math, then you could simply add the appropriate resistor on the main lead and avoid cutting out the old resistors.

Search the net for an 'LED Calculator' and you can plug your numbers into that to give you an idea of which new resistor you would need for that 7v difference. So if 5v needs, say, 200ohm, then you would need to add ~300 ohms to get the 470ohm minimum. They only come in specific sizes, so if there isn't a 270ohm in this example, you go up to the next rated number. Never less!

The way to tell the resistor rating is by the color bands on it. There are usually 3-4 bands, but there could be as many as 6. If you have a smart phone, I highly recommend 'Electrodroid'. This little application is IMMENSELY useful for all electronics work. Primarily, it has an excellent resistor table that will let you ID any resistor with an interactive color chart.

You could go to radio shack and pay some stupid money for resistors, they are a penny or two anywhere else in the world except thru them. If you want a handful of 470's, I'll throw some in an envelope and mail them to you. I've got thousands on hand. PM or email me.

The back looks great but you cheated by having all the PSU wires in the front. Any reason you went this route? It would look much cleaner if you route them behind the MB tray. Then if you get a PSU and HDD cover, it would look great.

I have it plugged into the Intel Sata port using ACHI, From what I have read online and other forums the speed I am getting is about right for that drive.
I tried to route the PSU wires to the back but they didn't fit. The side panel won't close. Not enough space which is why I had to route them that way...

I am making covers for the PSU and HD cage.. when I have some more free time ill work on them a little more..

They don't seem like they will fit but they will...My scout was the same but with a little brute force and ignorance I eventually got the back panel on. I have just got to put up with the fact it looks 6 months pregnant now tongue.gif

You could also look into creating a potential divider circuit out of two pre-calculated resistors that will drop the voltage down from 12v to 5v whilst supplying enough resistance to prevent you blowing the LED's...need to do the math like previously said but I feel It would be far easier to incorporate your 12v loop into your 5v loop.

just an idea though thumb.gif

Im not sure why these storage benchmarks almost never live up to the specs, the one that does more often in ATTO, not sure how theyre different though. Still, im sure that SSD makes your system feel super fast thumb.gif
