Connecting CCFL's to a switch!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys new here to the forums. Been doing a lil modding to my Thermaltake Armor + case. I have a couple of CCFL leds and was wondering how can I hook them up to a bayswitch. The bayswitch I'm talking about is here: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/76...t_-_Black.html

Anybody know how to hook up some CCFL's that come with the inverter to a bayswitch. Any help would be appreciated and as soon as there hooked up I'll post some pics of the results. Thanks in advance guys.

Just put one of the power wires going into the invert in series through the contacts on the switch.

Thanks for the reply but can you please explain step by step on how to do this. I've looked everywhere and quite frankly, there a lil confusing. Never done a mod like this before so I'm seeking advice on how to do it. I have 3 CCFL Cold Cathodes with 2 inverter boxes. My bayswitch has 2 switches on em with 2 prongs each. Please help anybody as this is my last mod to complete my build!

Cut one power wire in half.
Connect one side to each switch contact.

Done.

Slightly related, but do you know the amperage the switch must be to work with the computer's power supply. I know they must be 12v.
