Thanks for the feedback!!
that setup is much better
each of the fans now has 6 insted of 5
maybe a resistor?
it might work, i have never over volted a led.
could you measure the current the fan led draws and i could tell you the resistor size.
or use 3 diodes this will drop the voltage by 1.8V to there will be about 10.2 for the fans

Ok, Rockr, if you're going with the Nvidia, I can get you the 7800GS, I'm pretty sure it's this:
http://www.bfgtech.com/bfgr78256gsoc.aspx
I can take it out and verify that if you want. I doesn't come with a warranty but it's barely used, it works terrific and it will cost you less. Shipping will be $97.50 though!
Gotta go, the V.A. gave me a strong dose of strong meds and I gotta get out of here for the afternoon. I just wanted to let you know this so you don't just jump into one of the others. I should be back tonight.

That's cool and all Bri, but I can get a 4600 series card that'll spank the 7800gs or GT for the same money. I am grateful for your thoughts on the matter

Thank you, Bradey ... to confirm, yes, this is the LED switch on the front bezel. Also, for now, I would be powering 2 fans each with 4 blue LEDs for a total of 8 blue LEDs (I believe blue requires a tad more voltage than red or green). Soon though I'd like to power 3 fans for a total of 12 blue LEDs.

Given this, do you think I would still need to make use of a resistor, diode, or some other voltage sapping mechanism?

[edit]

I guess one thing I need to clear up is whether the LEDs in the fans are in series or parallel - I'm going to guess I'm out of luck and that they are in parallel in which case the blue LEDs, as I understand, are at 3.4V meaning I'm overvolting by nearly double for each fan assuming I've only got 2 fans hooked up to this thing? ... hmmm ... better get me some more blue LED fans lols!

Seriously though, is this accurate?

The schematic posted earlier for reference ...

Uhm ... yeah, that was me in that post with the relay schematic.

I was just thinking I could use a terminal block to kill 2 birds with 1 stone - 1) be able to control ALL lighting in my case and 2) not have to use a relay or transistor to manipulate the switch.

Ok scratch that, guys ... I think I will try to use a resistor instead. I'd hate to accidentally plug in too few fans and end up burning the LEDs. Here is my revised schematic ...



I've got the LED leads from the fans back in parallel and I've also got the 12V lead from molex through the switch in parallel (I think) - but the 12V to the fan LED terminals will have a 470 ohm 1/2W resistor. According to this calculator that should bring the voltage down to 5V for the fans. If this is right, I can plug as many or as few fans onto those terminals without worrying obout overvolting.

How does this look?

Hey troops! For those of you who don't know I've been working on my buddies build and painting his case. He wanted it Seahawks colors and after a huge steep learning curve I have final paint pics. The case Is a Thermaltake Xaser III and I hope you enjoy.
OH the colors are two shades darker than my camera make them out to be.





Gotta touch up those sanded areas where I chipped it moving it around

Of course, first my apologies for my edit for content.

Very very very nice Rockr! Did you use that bottle of Meguires on the finish or is that it's natural sheen with the paint you used? Did you already say what that fan controler is? If you did, would you kindly re-post what it is?
Finally you have heat in this garage, right??

This may have already been posted but I came across this Cooler Master Parts Online Store which I believe is based out in the Netherlands. It's got a whole bunch of parts for the Scout including the blue LED fans with LED on/off leads I had been looking for (although now I'm waiting for Enermax to release a 140mm version of their Cluster fan also with LED on/off leads).

Anyway thought I'd share it in case anyone was curious.

P.S. Page 695 pwnage!
