hello all. I wanted to do the mod where the leds are above the controller ports but dont want them to be immensly bright. anyway i can go about doing that with out buying more leds (already have 100 blue ones)? i thought i could just get a different resistor with a higher ohmage (the regular one would be 36 ohms). I wanted them to be bright enough to see them during the daytime but not blinding when im playing a video game. Any help would be greatly appreciated
EDIT: also, i have some spare led holders. should i use them or just hot glue the leds into the case. the holders might give it a more refined look.

I don't think the brightness is directly proportional to the voltage, so it's hard to tell you like "they'll be exactly 1/2 as bright" or whatever, so I would just try one with a 470 ohm and see if I were you.
