Default Front case light

My case has a front case light on the door and I wondering if I can mod the wires so it can be powered from the boards power light pins. I want it to flash when my system is in stand by.

Light off


Light On


How can I find out if the board can handle this light before I start modding anything?

There are 3 other versions. Silver w/o window, Black w/o window and Black w/ window. I have no idea where to find those versions.

Edit: It works, but the light is very dim so it doesn't matter. I pulled a blue led apart from my old PC and I'm going to use it for a stand by light. Its going to flash through the window.

About the only thing I can think of it connecting these LEDs over to your motherboard Hard Drive and Power Signal LED pins. It will involve some soldering.

From there it's up to your motherboard to have those lights flashing when they are in stand by mode.


That case looks like it belongs in the game HALO!

it is a really cool case, For your problem they sell prewired LED's at somewhere like frozencou.com that you probably can get two then rip of both of the connection solder them together and put the connections back together then hook it up to your Mobo for the lights under the H.d.d Light port thingy mobober and it should flicker on and off when the PC is accesing the Harddrive. Hope that works.
