    Default My White Led V8

    I'll be modding a Cooler Master V8 with a higher CFM fan & white Leds instead of the Red. First I ordered some part from FrozenCPU
    1/4W Metal Film Resistor 10-Pack - 470ohm (12 V DC)
    5mm White LED
    Black 1/8" Nylon Cable Sleeve
    Scythe SY-1225SL12SH SlipStream 120mm Fan 1900RPM 110CFM 37dBA





    Next I started to make a led power cable, by soldering the 470ohm Film Resistor on the red wire on a 3 pin connector.



    The completed led power cable



    Next I drill a hole in the top of the fan to allow the led to insert.



    The led power cable attached & ziptied on the bottom.

    I did both sides the same then put the new fan in & put the V8 cap back on.

    cool simple mod.
    I have one question for you. Why did you use 2 pin connector plug for the light bulb instead of soldering the wires directly to it or anticipate easy future replacement?

    Good Question, The two separate Leds plugs into the end of there own power cable & can be changed at any time, separately, The fan plugs into a Zalman fan controller, If the Leds were on the same line as the fan, they would get dimmer when I want to turn the fan speed down,, this way, everything can be changed without cutting any wires. plug & play, so to speak.
