post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to figure out a way to make a simple LED light with a 4-pin molex. The only trouble I'm having is finding the proper information. Does anyone know where i can find a guide or may some guideone me through? I have aenough materials to salvage with i plan on stopping by Radio Shack for some blue led's, heatshrinks, etc.

Thanks for the help. One question. I'm using an OCZ ModStream OCZ52012U, which source voltage should i use? I was guessing 12v since I pretty much want to use atleast 4 led's.
