Just wondering, because I've modded my Xectuor switch by removing the LED, taking a wire off the switch so that when the box is booted with chip, a LED is lit on the end of the wire. Then I've placed this new wired LED onto my front panel. Changed my BIOS so when it's booted from chip, no front panel lights are on, just the new wire LED.

The end result is, standard BIOS is normal green front panel, and chip activated it blue front panel. But I only got one blue LED, so the end result at the moment looks a bit crap with just a semi-eclipse blue front panel.

I'm out of LEDs, and it's a misson to go out and buy one... was wondering if someone had posted some kind of alternate mounting position for them.

Even if you don't have the green LED off, the blue overpowers it

Well, I tried blue and green... looks duff
Tried blue and red, looks pink and purple (girlfriend would love that one)
Tried blue and orange, looks orange and purple... like a popicle!

So! I figured, I'm leaving it with blue and off, and when I can be bothered, I'll go buy another LED, but! I'm gonna hook it up to the HD LED point, and have it as a HD LED.
