So here is my problem. i have some mods done to my xbox (XBMC dash, custom jewel, hardwired red front led, power/eject switched, extra fans)but... under the led i am looking to sand out the XBOX logo and put some leds under so just the letters glow. but i am wondering which wires (from the powersupply)are power and which is ground and also will i have any trouble with things like the rest of the box not getting the correct voltage because of the leds

any links or pics are very welcome

follow the molex wires to the psu. the molex wires are the 4. older versions have red black dark green yellow. others have something else but basically the same, reds + blacks -

use the red for 5v +
use the yellow for 12v +

ground is any of the shielding, screws on the mobo, ect. you can solder your ground wire to that.

yellow = 12V
black (both of them) = grounds
red = 5V
