Hi!

 

Does anyone here at the forums know any green battery powered LED Light or strips for my build? The reason why is because I don't have an extra 4-pin or molex connector to connect it with.

 

Thanks!

Why not just get a molex splitter to add it in via the 12V power.

Have you considered something like the nzxt hue?

I run my own indie game company called Color Dragon Studios where we are currently making a 2d platformer game called Small Earth.

yeah LED's draw so little power you could convert the 4 pin molex to a 3pin fan plug even and power it from the motherboard (I wire all mine directly to fan header plugs) or if you have a spare SATA power use an adapter to convert SATA power to 4 pin molex

Most fan headers are rated for around 100mA...thats not much current...i would be careful because you risk burning out the traces or the headers.

Hi! If you ever need some structural, mechanical or electrical design/build help on your new rig, send me a PM and ill try and help you out!

Very true, though a 5050 SMD LED draws 1.2A per 60LEDs, so, chances are you should be fine even with a 1.0amp recommendation.
