I've installed alot of leds on things lately I love installing them, the normal green led's everywhere are lame

So here is what I've done lately and if you have any suggestions on what to do with more LED's I would appreciate it.









Thanks for looking

I think 5mm LEDs would work fine and I'm not sure where to hook them up but you could google it.

I thought you were talking about hooking up LEDs inside the xbox...but as far as the RF board you could use the same ones for the controller either 0603 SMD leds or 0805 would work as well I believe

That is because they are but the setup of the retail leds are different they have a common positive and two negatives one for the red error and one for the green normal...but you can fit the 0603 between just the postive and green negative

Use 5mm or 3mm LEDs for the inside of your 360. I wire mine to the 12v power point on the under side of the mobo where the power brick plugs in. That allows me to wire them in series without causing any of the lights to grow dim :biggrin: Also, when planning on adding LEDs to your case, remember to run the numbers through a LED calculator to be sure to get the right resistors so you don't blow your LEDs. Although 2 100ohm resistors in series should basically cover any LED install. Hope this helped someone :biggrin:
