If it resulted in any real temp difference I might reconsider because I'm not sure if I want them in there in the first place x_x thanks in advance
I thought myself that it might, that said I have 2 5mm leds directly inside the gpu water blocks (EK VGA Supremes) thats 4 diodes in total, very close to the physical die right inside the block... and the temps at idle? 2c above ambient air... load... low 30's... all things considered equal... talking maybe... with half a dozen diodes... maybe... maybe... 3-4 watts added? and thats being really generous... so little its meaningless, they get warm, so its something... but not a deal breaker one way or the other I would think...
