Been meaning to post back here but I have been slammed with life and other things building this computer. Yes that worked just fine. I’m going to yank all the NZXT stuff for the exception of the fan’s which will get hooked up to the Pro.
Tomorrow I will have all my stuff to build the breakout board for the 3 channels which I need since I have 3 different led setups in the PC.
One channel will be dedicated to the strips for the accent lighting. I think there will be 30 maybe up towards 40 there.
Another channel is dedicated to all the 5mm WS2812 going into the water cooling parts. 3 in the reservoir, there are 6 which all shoot light inside the tubing at every connector. I also have a special drill bit for acrylic so I can bore out the 3mm holes on the CPU block to 5mm, that’s 4 more. 13 total 5mm. I may add a few more later but that’s enough to get the bulk done. I’ve decided that trying to chain all the 5mm’s together doesn’t makes sense. I will have a 6 led chain for the cpu block but I am running the DI and DO back to the board and just chaining from the board connector there. Should make for some cleaner cabling.
The last one will be for the NZXT fans, 24 leds in that circuit.
Looks like I’ll be picking up a couple of flex’s soon. I want to back light the pc case which will be wall mounted and also the monitor. Hopefully I can make 32 leds work on each. Anyways, some cool and tasteful PC lighting coming real soon.
