I made one little circuit to switch the leds. When the motherboard gives the signal, then this circulation is switch on between the leds and +5V.

This is needed because the motherboard can't supply enough power for the leds. I could not connect the leds directly to the PSU, because then the red HDD leds would not blink (the are behind the on-off switch). And if there some hardware problem, then the motherboard gives a blinking signal to the green Power leds.

It contains two PNP transistors (one HDD and one Power), and for resistor (two for the HDD and two for the Power).

It reminds me of the time I used an adhesive shelf paper liner (Contac) to cover an old rusting case--that was a really easymod. It lasted around 6 months and starting peeling off, hehe, nothing to do with today's new vinyls. Of course it was a "quick" fix before I knew anything about modding, including old paint and rust removal and a total dis-assembly of the case.

It's a neat redo of the Elite and the vinyl makes a great difference in looks. Best of Luck!

Cheers and Saludos

Please don't compare my chases to that rusty one.

It was one difficult mod, and I made one full painting before applying the carbon vinyl.

And it was difficult to apply especially at the corners.
