Why not just use an old usb connecotr in the front to get 5v, upto 500mA is usually available (or is that for both?, oh my head)

Anyways yeah, just have the connector hot glued so it can't short and simply use the gnd and 5v to st up your pretty lights without upsetting ms.

Maybe there's a open source of power under the faceplate but can't tell you through telepathy as ms has installed tin foil in their buildings to deflect my weakened concentration from uk smile.gif

OR maybe link a wire through from the hdd connector probably 12v somewhere on it smile.gif

Only time will tell!!!

p.s Keep churning out those new controller mods good to see what i'm gonna be able to do smile.gif

SHAT, managed to click new topic rather that reply, should be in faceplate modding topic sad.gif, sorry
