LED Related Query


so i decided to mod my CM stryker to look good, just adding some LEDs, thats all for now.

i went to market to find something, and i found the following:

1: 5 meter led strip of any color for 200 rs

2: 5 meter led strip of RGB color, i can set any color for 900 rs.
it contains a remote and sensor, the remote has buttons for RGB color and +/- button to set intensity or frequency(dont know the exact term to use), the sensor makes changes in voltage so that the LEDs emit different colors.

which one should i go for? i am more inclined towards the RGB one.

I just want to make sure that is it safe to connect the strip to the left over, 2 pin connector of my case? meant for case fan led.

Re: LED Related Query

yea i know white will look cool, but i want to experiment, if successful i will try and change the fan-LEDs so that whole system will change color simultaneously.

Re: LED Related Query

Can you tell me if the RGB LED will change its colour Automatically aswell or you will have to change it manually to (RED-GREEN-BLUE).
i Dont think so you will be able to cut that LED Strip and Joint it (solder with Wires) and Stick it in Different parts of the cabinet.

Re: LED Related Query

the way i saw at the store, it has both options, it has some pre-defined patterns for colors and single solid color, whichever you want. controls are on a remote.

the shopkeeper told me that i can cut the strip after every 3 leds and solder the different parts of strip, thats what i'm gonna do.

Re: LED Related Query

Try Cuttiing the last 3 LED (end). and then Solder and try it. Send me a pic once you complete this. i have a Attached Almost 3 mtrs. LED Strip(BLUE) in My Cabinet.
Do not Connect it to Fan Controller Cable on the Stryker, it will keep on Flashing . you can connect it to Molex to 3 pin Fan Connector or to LED on off Connector but you need the Connector as on Fan that Fan not any normal 2/3pin Connector.

---------- Post added at 03:08 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:07 PM ----------

i have Cut that LED on off cable on the fan and made a 1 Female to 4 male 3 pin Fan Splitter. i can now Turn on off those LED when i want.

Re: LED Related Query

what if i just connect it to molex thats directly connected to PSU??? i guess the strip has its own mechanism for turning off/on.

btw can i make something like 'nzxt hue'?

will go to market and buy the strip today, will send you pics after that

Re: LED Related Query

No problems brother even if you connect it to Molex. i first Connected it to Molex. if you have a Plan of Connecting it in Diffeerent Parts of Cabinet then .
take a look at how i have Done. and How it Looks. i have First Connected it to a Molex to 3 pin Fan Connector. then i made 1 Female to 4 Male Connector (3 pin). all 4 LED strips have a 3 pin Female connector Each (connector you have in Fans). if you see the 4th and fifth pic you can get a Idea of what i have Done.

Re: LED Related Query

both those sound like they are local cheap quality.

good quality ones come for 200rs a meter and above. buy good quality to be safe.
also the good ones come with 3M tape applied, so it hold really well. mine are still up even after a year.
