Step 1: Lets get atarted get yer tools out
solder iron & solderer
wire ( i had some enammeled wire lying round ) **shrug** my place is good like that .
hot glue gun ( sticky pads are ok i suppose )
pliers,cutters,scissors,teeth what ever youve got
beer ,bifta = BONUS
** like my babyliss solder iron stand made from my missus hairstr8ners stand **
take lid off and rip out the metal lining
Step 2: Solder away ! leds & resistors
5mm 4x blue
5mm 2x green
cause I'm such a nice guy ill save you the time working out values lol
xbox psu (powerpack) is the same as PC's so you have 2 options 12v or 5 v .
since the leds are 3.3v (20ma) i used 5v so the resistors we want to use are 100 ohm (brown black brown *gold tolerance*
the blue leds over powered the green so i used 400 ohm resistors for the blues but thats my personal prefrence
look closely at the led there is a large & small metal bit inside its the SMALL 1 that is positive (+)
go ahead and solder 1 end of the resistor to positive.
scruffy spider wiring was only to test as some leds out my box were dead
