Just use usb to power them like me. Grab a cheapo 50 bucks usb cable....then do cut put get.

Its not such a good idea to power other stuffs using laptop,specially when its overclocked .

I always avoid using power supply from laptop . Don't want to stress on motherboard .

That what I am doing right now. I have 10s of charges lying around .
But later on I have plans to power those led through 19v brick only.
Don't want separate bricks for fans and leds.

19v for LEDs seems overkill. One of my LEDS went to the bad just when a voltage of 9.3v was applied. Hope I am not banned for my other post >.>


And be careful with 19v adapters, I once tried to fix a wire problem and it melted the sht outta insulating tape and the extra wire.

Led ~ 3v.
I will put a resistor across those leds or add them in series. Only problem is red leds don't work when joined with white leds in series. Wonder why!!

Try reversing the polarities.....LEDs only work one way but I guess you already know this. I put all my LEDS in parallel for minimum headaches when one LEDs goes off.

I did that.
But no matter which combination I try , red and white leds don't seem to work in series.

Right now I have 4 pairs of leds in paralled with each other.
Two red pair and two white. Unfortunately only two pairs at bottom work rest two at top don't.!!!!

Idk....guess that sucks...so what you trying to do anyway? :p

All leds have one short leg(-ve) and one long +ve try connecting them in the series long short long short...... Then connect last long end to +ve terminal and last short ebd to negative. This should work.

Give it a bit of finish of professionalism.
I.e. 1. 4 glowing fans .
2. On off switch for leds.
3. Potentiometer for voltage control for fans and leds.
4. Dancing effects for leds .
5. Grill at the bottom.
6. Finally some stickers!!!!!

I think it has potential to look polished and professional. As far as work and efficiency is concerned it leaves almost every other after market laptop cooler in dust by leaps and bounds.
4 effing fans blowing at terrific speed !!!!!!!!

I was able to build all this under 1k bucks easily . Even cheaper if you have the spares . And one can't get a decent cooler under 2k for sure. So better build one.

Personally I hate dancing effects.....takes away the adjective silently efficient (Imo).
And what grill?

Mine is under 400 bucks and will prolly reach ~600 for 3 more fans. The only good alternative for me was cm notepal u3 which costs 2k and is completely unnecessary.

[MENTION=140405]Rishi.[/MENTION] I don't need the my laptop cooler anymore after switching over to Arctic Silver V.
I suggest you do the same. It has made a difference of almost 10 degrees in my case.

You may also opt for IC Diamond for a couple of extra degrees but it is not available in India.

Mine is still under warranty so I don't find it wise to tamper things in it......specially since its Acer. But I will try Arctic Silver , just in case my mood swings,

Mine was under warranty too but I went ahead with opening it for SSD, Ram change and repasting.
If you are careful then aren't you safe and not voiding the warranty?
