a 10k resistor is what you use to use the hdd activity mod and it should work fine unless you do have one in there maby your fan IS! to strong my fan says 12 VDC and its hooked up to my hard drive power source yet i dont think it would really make the light weaker

knowing me and the sh ty radio shacks around here there were none so i just solderd together 10- 1k resistors and encased them in some heatshrink tubing then solderd it all under on the bottom of my mother board it looks crazy seeing 10!! 1k resistors on the bottom they almost reach from the pin 39 connection to the other point!
it works fine tho il try and find the link to the tutorial im talking about

its a mod for the eject light so you dont have to add a extra LED to the outside of your xbox it just changes colors around your eject button
if your using a 5v LED stand alone just use a 100 ohm resistor that will work fine
10k on one LED would be a waste... probably mess something up even

|The resistor is just for what you use. Just use the formula to work out the resistor. I'm using 100 ohm resistors on my leds, just because they call for like 56ohm ones... using a different souce of current that what other people use will effect the brightness of your led. For me... 5v source, 3.3v leds with 30mA, so 100 is even more than I need... get what i'm trying to say?|
Use the formula? What formula would that be?
