Purple LED

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I've been trying to find some 120mm purple LED case fans (Not UV). I have found purple LEDs for sale but I'm not sure if I need to buy the 5mm or 3mm. Anyone able to find any 120mm purple led fans anywhere??

Apparently cooler master had one, but it's not available any more.

You'd be better off putting purple LEDs into a fan. I think it's 3mm, but I'm not sure.

Also, use hot-melt glue to secure the LED in the fan. Thats what they use when the LEDs come preinstalled in fans.

EDIT: Be sure to get enough hot-melt glue on there so that any exposed metal on the leads that isn't covered by heatshrink gets covered by hot-melt glue, to prevent any shorts.
