Instructables


I had order a bag of 100 rgb led so i get in thought to change any led in any device with rgb.. lol

Sorry this is my first instuctubleand it is a little mesh..

Step 3: Preperation

Solder the resistors with the anode of the leds as like the pic..

Desolder the old leds or in case of led fan and solder the rgb leds. if the hole is for 3mm led u should open it more with the solder iron or with dremel.

or

Make 3 holes as i tag them in foto with the Soldering iron or with a dremel in case of simple type fan.. in the size of ur rgb leds... Also u have to solder to wires to the red+ and -black in the back of the fan to power the leds..
Nice project, seeing this was part of my inspiration to build a fully controllable RGB LED fan controller.  I like the color changing effect but I wanted to be able to control it from the PC so I'm building one that uses an AVR microcontroller to independently control each RGB LED (my fan takes 4 LED's) as well as the fan speed.

hope to see instructable about ths soon.... ;)
I made an Instructable about it last year, but I'm making a new design now that will support multiple fans. I also used Processing to create a music visualization with the flashing LED's. I have wired two more fans with 4-pin RGB LED's and will make the circuit boards this weekend, then install in my PC (Antec 900 case). I'll either edit my existing Instructable or make a new one with videos/pics of it.

where did you get that many leds, and how much were they?
ninjanody (author)  punkatsub5 years ago
i order them from ebay and it came from china for about 25€ with transportation.
right, 25 for how many?

My fans are wired differently. Any chance i can just cut the wires connected to the current LEDs, and resolder the auto-changing LEDs to those wires? They are the same voltage as the ones in the fan already.

ofcourse you can.. just solder them right..

how bout a full rgb auto cycle plexi glass case mod

hope to have time to build soon.. i am in army now...
where we can buy 3 auto change rgb leds 5 mm?

you guys are smart. can i hook up a rgb led in parallel with the different colors such as: green to red , red to blue . and blue to green pls respond ty.
ninjanody (author)  akatsuki6665 years ago
yes u can connect any color led as is powered to the same voltage... the leds i use they auto cycle colors... u can use rgb led with 4 pins so u can control wich color u want to light up.. if u search in this site u will find shematics for rgb led controllers... or u can do it manual with switch before every led.. best choise is to use a microcontroler an program it as u like...
