This lead is your negative (cathode) lead. The other lead ends inside the LED very close to this "cup" or support and is connected to the crystal by a ridiculously fine wire. This lead is your positive lead (Anode).

Hope that helps, good luck!
Thanks, McIvero. That's really good info. You're right, can't see it with the naked eye but unfortunately no access to a magnifying glass either. I'll see if I can order one.

[QUOTE=Roweyi7;13676069]I'm going to do mine later, dont do yours first mate because if i mess it up ill be able to get a new one quicker than what it will be for you in afghan. Ill take pictures for you and stuff to show you how to do it

I appreciate it Rowey, but if it fries the pcb it just means I will have to hook up the fans directly instead of through the controller so no worries. Thank you though.

Sketched out some ideas for my window. Will post them and maybe you guys can help me choose one = P
I was in the same dilemma so I posted in the NZXT forum. Admin told me the clearance is 148.2mm with the side fan.

Absolutely! The paint is coming along nicely but I can't start the build until the interior paint gets here and of course all the rest of the parts LOL.

Anyway, Keep posting awesome pictures! :
I order a lot (and I mean a LOT) through Amazon. One thing that has saved me literally $$$Thousands$$$ in shipping is the Amazon Prime. Not sure if it's available for you where you are at, but another choice would be Tigerdirect and pay the $49 for the "Inner Circle". Just a couple things to try.

Please don't laugh too much = P
Had a basic stick drawing and figured what the heck, used MS Paint and edited together this from an empty casing with no side panel, haha

It's enough that you can see the general ideas I'm considering. Planning to round off (small circle) the left extreme top and bottom corners, as well as the right extreme top and bottom corners.

The 200mm side fan will be mounting on the plexi window itself. Will make sure it looks as neat as possible, no worries = )

I like how the bottom 2 x 120mm fans look with this window design, so might not change them at all. If I can find a way to make them look better, who knows = P

Which design do you guys prefer? The more plain right side design? Or where I put the lines running across?

Again, this was done in a few minutes using MS Paint so go easy on me, haha

They both look great! IMO the second one wins out.

Much thanks bro, the U9 should fit comfortably if that's the case = )
Hope I do a decent enough job painting the fans though. Noctua's color scheme really doesn't match with very much builds unfortunately = P
