I am going to light the X and also add some lights to the vents on the front of the Xbox (underglow). These will be Green 5mm LEDs from SickMods.net.
30AWG wire will be used for the 8 LEDs that will be mounted under the jewel. This is so it can be easily routed in the channel that is already on my clear case lid. 26AWG wire will be used for the front 4 and connecting to the 5v and Ground on the Xbox. I also plan to use a molex Y adapter to get power.
-12x 5mm Green LEDs (from SickMods.net)
-1x 22ohm resistor (for the 4 LEDs on front) (from SickMods.net)
-1x 12ohm resistor (for the 8 LEDs under jewel) (from SickMods.net)
-5ft 30AWG Wire (from SickMods.net)
-5ft 26AWG Wire (from SickMods.net)
-Hot Glue Gun
-Blue Painters Tape (Great for holding wires temporarily to plan out setup)
-Molex Y Adapter
-Marker (great for marking Positive/Ground Wires)
(It may seem like a lot of supplies, but it really is not that much when you get it all together)
Things To Do
-Connect to Xbox 5v Power
I will also first say that some of the hot glue looks messy and it's just because my glue gun is about 15 years old and does not work all that great, so it gets blobby and wierd.
