I just had a quick question, I noticed that on the RoL there are 4 on the outside, and 1 on the inside (well, no duh). But the one on the inside is smaller. Does it matter if I replace it with a 0603, will it work?

Thanks to the person who helps =]

I believe the outside ones are actually larger than 603's (maybe 805) since they have 2 seperate lights and 3 pins. Now the center one should just be a standard 0603, so it could be replaced with either a 603 or 805.

Well if possible, see if you can find those 3-pin ones (i cant remember the name for the life of me), but ya those will do just fine. However, why green? If you're going with a custom ROL, choose a colour that's not already in use by said ROL, lmao.

Well, the color that is used by Microsoft is yellow-ish. If you buy light kits and LED fans like I did, it doesn't match. Pure Green is the color that matches the LED light kits and whatnot.

I have a blue one that i don't really like. The blue ROL looks blurry to me. Green and all the other colors look nice and sharp.

Use 0603 on the inside and on the outside use 0805. Should work great.
