200mm Fan LED`s does not seem to shine?Can I connect them to the power wires of the fan? Answered
Recently I bought a 200mm LED fan:
Accept mine has LED on/off support.
The problem is I mounted it onto a Notebook cooling pad and it works great the only problem is the LED`s stays off?ive been asking around on how to switch on these LED`s Manually but it seems I need an extra 5V to switch them on.There is 4 wires on the fan in groups of 2 .The wires are the following--
Black+Red= ?? "Probably LED`s"
My question is if I really want to go through all the trouble of making these LED`s work should I connect those Black+Red wires onto the Power wires coming from the adapter and put a 9V resistor on them or is there an easier way of doing this?The reason im putting the resistor in is so that the fan and the LED`s dont split power equally thus giving the FAN 6V and the LED`s 6V which will probably end up bad?
OR do I have everything wrong here?
Im willing to give the LED`s 3V of the entire 12V leaving 9V to the Fan which is ok I guess.
Thanks in advance!
