ok, so i put some windows into my 360's shell, and replaced the fan and fan duct with the whisper fan and talismoon blue led fan duct. but me being the impulsive person that i am it has to have more. so i took off the top part of the case and dotted out where i would like to put blue LEDs, (28 to be exact) however, im a rookie at this so im not sure what the hell to use. i know though that i am going to need some kind of wiring and a soldering iron for sure, and the LEDs, but is there anything else? plus, i dont know what kind of wire to get or length, nor do i know what type of LEDs to get. here is a pic of the mapped out xbox shell...





peace.

ok so first i increase you number of leds to 30 to get a better balance so you can wire them in groups of 10. you will need a 10 ohm 1 watt resistor for each group and any smaller gauge wire will work i would go with 26 awg. and wire them to a 5v source there are many different sources on the mobo. so here is your picture with the groups and layout its not much different from your just increased the number by 2. you can go to sickmods.net to get all the parts you need.

I really like Sickmods, I ordered a couple of Sickmod faders from them plus I bought solder and 26 awg a few months back. I was very pleased with there service and I would order from them again... Nice job on your window cutout dude, that's going to look awesome lit up. Post some pics when you finish your workl. Smile
