i know ths is a pc site but im making a case mod for a friends xbox 360 fat(elite jasper) and it'l have a window and/or leds in the ''case '' dvd drive'' ''hdd ''and in the "controler''.
now i will have diffrent sized and kinds of leds in each part of the console Heres a list of what leds go where The Case: red led strip lights ran from a back fed usb cable or from the dvd drive power cable "already bought the leds" (im pretty sure the strip lghts wont need resistors)
The DvD Drive: X6 red 5 mm leds . powered by the dvd power cable
Hdd: X 2(maybe 4 i havnt decided yet) red 3 mm leds powed by the hdd power(5V i think but i realy dont know ) cable as shown in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jA126yCEPxc&t=408s
The Controller: X2 3mm red leds ran straight off the X2 AA batterys(3v)
Now i know that all the 5 and 3 mm leds will needs some kinda resistors. But i cant find out howto figure which kinda. However i have some 100 ohm 1/4 watt 5% resistors on hand as well as some 56 watt and 46 watt of the same. will these work?
As for parallel or serial, idk realy u guys can desisd which way u think is best. im open for options i have purchest all th eparts needed for this build (even the listed resistors ) and wud love some help here guys thnx:D
as to the leds and video tutorials im using heres all the links:D
method for strip lights(only i might be running them from a back fed usb cable)
method for controller
method for the dvd drive(instead of strip lights i will use X6 5mm leds)
ps. i know that this is a pc site so i hope this will be acceptable seeing gaming consoles r just mini non upgrade-able pc's with a special os. plz respond guys i posted on toms hardwear but no one ther was helpfull in in full yet so i figured id try u guys:D thnx for any sugestions.
