The Led's You Get With The Crystal Case
Posted 28 January 2008 - 11:16 PM
Problem is, I still want these fans in, so is there another Power Source I can use for the LED's to work properly?
I was tempted to use the same one as I did for the fans, but Im concerned the LEDs will try and pull too much power, and do something bad to the console.
Im crap at all this, but Im good with a soldering iron, and if it works for others, Ill try it.
I also contacted the seller about it, and they just said "dont push your luck. Just dont install them." But the whole point of buying them is to use them!

I mean, will the fans and lights work off that one 12v source?

What Im thinking of doing is cutting the wire that goes from the 12v to the fans, and soldering the LEDs wire onto the cut wire, so power goes to both AND I dont have to take the MoBo out of the shell again!
Thanks very much for the help!

The lights do come on, but not as bright as they SHOULD be.
When I flick the lights, one of them lights up to full brigness, but the rest dont.
If I flick it too much, then the 360 completely shuts down, and the PSU displays a red light.
Once I saw that, I gave up. Im assuming the lights are duff, so Ive been sold a dodgy batch of LEDs.
Thankfully, the 360 lives to fight (on COD4) another day!
