Rogue, please note I haven’t tested this. In fact, as I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m shelving this project for now. I think there might already be a resistor on the switch so the power is already 5V. The resistor strength on the diagram may also be off since I just used an online calculator not measuring the actual voltage and current.

But by all means, please do try it just know I didn’t test it ... and please post your results

Understood.. I'm still puttng things together. Most off, trying to find the two of the same switchs, just one 'Blue-led lite' & another 'Red-led lite'.
I found these switchs:Illuminated Round Rocker switch: 'MicroCenter'.
http://microcenter.com/single_produc...uct_id=0219018
and this one: Illuminated RED SPST Rocker switch: 'RadioShack'.
http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...ductId=2103602
These are 12v'ers.. (Both don't come in opposite color I need). The mount on the back are almost the same size hole as the existing-switch hole on the 'Scout'! I do have a question tho, the Led's are looped in the fans through the Red or the Yellow coming from the wires off the Fan???
"" I had a old fan with 3 wires coming out of it and when I snipped the yellow one, the led's and the power stopped. I tied them back & when I snipped the Red, just the Led's turned off."" So I figure it's like that on most fans as long as the wires are colored???

Sorry for the edit...

Congrats on the Scout! Yes, pictures please. Also, when you post the pictures, be sure to C&P the PHP for our club signature tag.

I need to preface that I am no expert so please take what I say with a grain of salt.

There are 4 wires coming out of the stock Scout fans. 2 are for fan power and the other 2 are for LED power. I always thought the 3 wire fans are PWM – the third wire being a speed sensor. I’m not sure why what you did cut power to the LEDs but not the fan.

Here is a decent tutorial on how to joey mod a typical LED fan to have separate LED power leads. Keeping in mind that (according to this guy), not all fans have the LEDs isolated from the motor.

Personally, this all seems to be a bit of a hassle which is why I’m always on the lookout for LED fans with separate power leads.

Hey, fellow AMD people:

Quote:
Rather than just quoting a single clock speed per CPU, these latest listings display additional "Turbo" speeds of 3.3GHz (up from 2.8GHz) for the 1055T and 3.6GHz (up from 3.2GHz) for the 1090T. We can probably take that as confirmation of last month's rumors, which said AMD had implemented a core "overclocking" scheme similar to Intel's Turbo Boost.

Looks like the six-core Phenom IIs cost about $206 for the Phenom II X6 1055T and $296 for the 1090T. The Norwegian site also confirms 9MB of L3 cache and 125W thermal envelopes for both offerings.
Here's the source with full article.

well, these are the fans I have in my "Scout'. They are 'Rosewill' Fans; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835200049 : beside the ones they come with!!!
QUOTING my self.. LOL

Now I haven't done this to the fans that are in there now but I ordered 2 'NEW' ones just in case when I test. Thanks for the 'decent Tutorial'. By the way, I should replace them, there over 18 months old and still running top speed, well about 1900rpm.. LOL
Just taken it all in right now; like this, until It's all together.. You do happen to find fans with '4' leads, Post them please...
