My silverstone raven has 2 leds hooked up to one molex. Heres the thing its a single positive and negitive comeing out of the molex and spliting it into 2 leds, what volt leds do i need isnt a molex off the power supply 12 volt, and dont say 12 volt leds they dont work.
There is somthing im missing here member 2 leds spliting off one molex
Ok silverstone raven comes with 2 blue leds well i want to go to red.
Currently i have a molex cable that hooks into the 5 volt and the ground on the psu's molex. the wire is split into 2 no resistor. to hook it up to the 5v and ground on molex what watt/volt/resistor or none leds do i need.
Do you have the specs for the LEDs, e.g. voltage and current? If so, we can figure out what resistor you need.
the old leds have no specs silverstone wouldnt tell me ne way. there is no resister in the wire now. the power comes off 5 volt and ground. I need red 5mm leds so what do i need to get btw im at radioshack right now lol. but they dont know
I dont even know what leds i need all i know is they need to be red and 5mm in size. What i need to know is that Volt leds to get and do i need a resistor as i have said before as in the picture about green is 5 volt white is ground.
Silverstone may well have the LED's outsourced from another maker and thereby do now have the info for you.
They just order LEDs that will work on 5 volts and let another company deal with the resistor or use led's with build in resistors.
On the plus side, with experimentation, the wost you do is blow an led(no resistor, but true me with enough voltage, a green led will turn orange. learned this as a kid) or have it too dim if you use too much resistance.
Remember, LED's only light one way so if you get no light, you may have it backwards.
