Hi I was wondering if this LED I have will work for the power button. It is a 3000mcd Super High Intensity Blue LED.... So can I just replace the double Green/Red LED already inside the Xbox with this one?

so long as its 3mm, (5mm fits but is hella hard to do, well it takes longer anyway)
and you are gonna need 2 of them, i dont think you will need a resistor, do you know the voltage and current it takes? that would tell you for sure

Its a 5mm 3.8 volt... So is this a good thing or a bad thing?

well its bad that its 5mm, you can read the pinned topic about any colour eject lights to get it in there, but you are still gonna need 2 of em
buy 2 new 3mm ones from anywhere, they are not very expensive
i think it will be fine with no resistor (just do it)
