Did this video help you?

MKPolarIce: I just bought some led 30cm strips primarily for case modding. They come with molex connectors on them. I wouldn't bother messing around with all this

Liam Morrison: I had to check the comments to make sure I wasn't the only one who thought that the cable management was horrendous. I like the idea and the lights look cool, but that bad cable management just completely killed it. 

---ElectroMan---: Anyone else OCD and notice the LED strip he put on the diagonal part of the window was off-kilter? 

Happy tylermovieproducction: It look like! Homemade Alienware area 51! Thank Man! I love alienware so much!

Mesmer Z: are there any ways for me to put leds in without soldering anything?

Zaphod BeebIebrox: your cable management is a mess, tidy that crap up!

lebulkEnjoy: Your cable management Loks Bad and you should feel Bad ,too

Phillip Mulligan: He is choosing this slightly more cumbersome system because it will look much cleaner free of wire clutter as explained in 8:20. His extra work does pay off coming time to show this off at the next LAN party/PC modding contest. Craftmanship and attention to detail is always in style be it PC modding, custom cars or fine woodworking.

Daryl Norton: I currently have a low voltage system for outdoor lighting. I have 4 100 bulb white christmas light strings that I want to convert to low voltage and integrate into my 120 Watt Controller or use something else to control just the christmas lights. The LED lights are just your standard 120V. Can anybody point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance

vvittydit: would it be ok to do this with a molex to sata connector?

Mark Woodworth: Nice video, but I think you just demonstrated what NOT to do. When you laid out the power connector strip, it should have been at the bottom of the case side, NOT in the middle where it would show. Your wiring layout was a mess too. But all-in-all you were just showing how to do it, and you did. Good job!

BSM Prod: Use heat-shrink tubing on the solder joints!

Serr Kocc: wow inside of your case looks terrible

TheRegalRolston: Anyone ever tell you you're the Bob Ross of LED installations?

jaber4life: How to add LEDs: put LEDs in your case

Ben Graves: Was the sea at the start quadrophenia?

Xtroidable: where can I find/get hold of the cables that wire up all the strips so that it's one whole circuit powered by one molex?

Marco Perfetti: wow so you mean my dream has come true, now i can finally put WATERPROOF LEDS' in my toilet bowl and watch my turds flush away happily into the sewer to be taken care of the water THANK GOD

elmotuz: If you have to but led strips in your computer, but them in the case not on side panel so you could do proper cable management!

KiLo Hellfire: NO NO NO NO NO! USE ELECTRICAL TAPE TO HIDE THE WIRES IT WILL BLEND IN WITH THE CASE YOU IDIOT (ocd at it's finest)

simonmaersk: You did some of these steps in a very retarded way. For example the molex connector. WTF was that??? Not to mentiion your horrible cable management in that case at the end...

grayzification: can you show how to plug this in?

GhostRiot: Good lord, what a mess. 

Dakawan S: Way to not solder properly, class one at best

GamingAndTech: I have the RGB 5050 LED Strip with a sound activated music contoller built in my case. Get the RBGs if you like changing your lights. 

Adrian Ortega: where were you when i ruined my pc with leds lol =( ty tho ive yet to see such a good guide for leds like and sub :p

Marco Perfetti: WHEN YOU MENTIONED ALCAHOL EVERY ALCAHOLIC TURNED AROUND TO LOOK FOR THE BOOZE

Girish Harlikal: The red and black wires from LED strip should b connected to which wires ,black or yellow????????? Anyone help plzzzzzz

MegaWharfedale: To much mucking around, I measured one length and went all the way around the outer edges on the inside of my pc, job done, time around 2 minutes.

xxkinetikxx: looks like crap

Frank Jackson: You get such a good view of the cable management.

Alan Vangjeli: well those cable make it ugly

Shrikant Raut: Awesome Video, thank you.

Ikaros Melan: I already bought 15 5mm 12v Pre-Wired Pink LEDs from lighthouse leds. now im pretty ignorant so when i got them, i had no clue what to do. because i was expecting them to be ready to connect to my computer case but there just simple wired lights. apparently i have to ground them to make them work but not understanding. ground them to what?

ratmdex: Great video 

Sam Childers: What is the item that the guy is holding at 8:29 and where can i get it?

Ian Holmes: If you want all of these pre-made with either Molex piggy back connectors, 3 pin fan connectors or even now SATA piggyback power connectors then just message me for the best supplier on Ebay !!

GhostDJ27: good job man it looks awesome

Alexander25C: Wanted to do it for a long time. before i wached your video. just finished. Zalman MS800. No side panel. Instaled leds on the front of the case. Looks absolutele amazing. I've done a better job including cable management. thx anyway 4 ur vid. 

josh haigh: anyone got a link for a cable to link the leds

Synthematix: Solder one wire to the chassis ground and yellow wire to molex plugs yellow pin

Matvey Tihonov: Coooool =)))

Ikaros Melan: What are the colors of LED lights you can add to the computer. can you buy any color?

RecklessWarriorX: NZXT HUE RGB Led Controller Good for Computers!

Lighthouse LEDs: Yes, you could do that.

pushpopLoC909: The PSU itself I'm assuming. No other reason he would use the molex connector other than that. It's not a stupid question by the way. You learn new things by asking no matter how 'stupid' one may think it is. :)

WhatTheHuq?: What wires did you use to connect the LED strips with each other?

Gabriel Fisher: I was actually looking to buy these lights. I thought I would find an example with different lights. This is awesome! Thank you!

Patrick Paredes: hilarious.. lol..

Nick Daniels: The documentation is in the video :) Watch and learn and you'll be on your way.
