On 2 pin connectors can not interfere one switch....(perhaps he have it already on to the front panel)

I don't want to go overboard with pcbs cause I'm building in an itx case and I want it as clean as possible. Also, I'm only using 1 led strip or maybe 2 but they'll be connected to one another.

Yeah, it's always better to make use of the stuff you already have. That definitely makes you in the top 5% of smart people on OCN biggrin.gif To wire a switch to something, you should just have to put the switch in between the Ground for the LED strip and whatever you're powering it from.

In theory no problem - you can.....
kpoeticg give you the 2 pin PCB as example....you can find shorter; or you can build your own PCB from scratch.
In fact you can use 2 pin PCB for led (without switch) or 3 pin with switch just behind the PCB power connector,
but be aware at cable build (mean the pin connection). The best way is to check at final once again with one voltmeter.

Placing the switch on ground wire is even better.

The caps came with the power supply, OCZ does that with their cables. I read a lot of mixed reviews on losing or keeping the caps, so i opted to take the safe route and keep them. I don't quite understand what you mean by what gen. , but i just built this a few months ago and have been tinkering with it since. It has the new 4th gen i7 with the Haswell bridge
post #10177 of 14329
I'm going to be sleeving an OCZ ZT 650w fully modular psu soon and I was wondering why it's okay to cut off the capacitors? When you guys say cut off do you mean cut them and leave them off completely? I tried to research more about this but according to this thread I shouldn't be cutting them off

I did read lutro0 state that as long as i'm not loading the PSU to the max I should be fine, I'll be using ~450W would that be okay?
post #10178 of 14329
I'm not sure if it would be ok to cut and completely leave them off. from what I've read the caps reduce spike and keep your voltage stable. some say it would be fine to leave them off, but others say you should keep them because components might not be as stable or efficient.
I opted to keep them since I overclock and need as much stability as i can get, however I use nowhere near 1250W.
It's ultimately your choice. However, you could try leaving them off and if you notice anything bad, just reattach them later.
I'm no professional but theres my 2cents
post #10179 of 14329
I don't use OCZ power supplies but I have cut off the capacitors on every Silverstone PSU cable I have used. I have a 50% overclock on my GTX780 and I do not have stability issues w/ the card.

Yes, however OCZ also has caps on the 20+4 pin ATX cable, from what i understand cutting the caps off the PCIe cables isn't so bad, but there's still a lot of debate over OCZ's ATX cable. so its really up to the modder, but my recommendation would be if your going to O.C. your CPU and RAM don't cut them, but that's just my opinion. And like I said I'm no Pro.
