    I still think it would be nice for these guys at JG to test stuff like this.

    Self resetting fuse would be really nice. I canceled the order and got this Amazon brand based on that Youtube test:

    It's been a Chinese or Asian market item mostly and the warranty isn't good in the US from what the reviewers say. I was considering it.

    This guy actually did a review of the 15.00 Amazon offering...
  5. Multimeter Sugestions, and Don't get cute with 500 dollar suggestions :)

    I can't afford a Fluke. 30 bucks or less. Amazon has literally hundreds of them but most are questionable. Amazon has it's own brand which is 'probably' decent. It's only 13 bucks. I'm ging to be...

    I'd do the same with the glass, but I'm having a hard time seeing my soldering object. For instance, I can see the pad and do the connection, but I'm not seeing how the solder is flowing. I can see...

    Naw, I use the mag with my glasses on. I need my depth perception to do soldering. So I need both eyes and my glasses, since one eye is out more than the other, and the glasses correct that.

    Yeah...

    Just so I can wear my glasses WITH the magnifier. I need my prescription glasses too. :)

    You know, cause I'm getting old. hahaha

    Thanks for the link.

    I don't like the magnifier top down systems. They tend to get in the way of me moving my iron and object around. I wanted over the glasses head mount type magnifier.
  10. What magnifyer do you use over your glasses for soldering, etc?

    I'm doing some soldering on 22AWg wire and LEDs right now, and I wear progressive lens glasses. However, the objects are just too small. I can see the connections and get it done, but I'm constantly...

    It might be the way to go then. I'm not sure if it melted the silicon or not. It just pulled some off when I ripped the magnet off the back of the strip. I tried some 3M double sided tape today and...

    It's just, yeah, probably would work. It's overkill and too much work. I have a lot of them to do.

    This is what happened. I bought IP68 waterproof RGB strip (16") because I was FUCKING OVER TRYING...

    I could have sworn that some of the reviews here commented on hot glue in the PSU I think for insulation of some sort? I remember that it looked like hot glue (yellow), not silicon. Are you gonna...

    Hot GLue Type for Electrnics?

    What type of hot glue do I need for electronics? It would be the same type that they use in computer PSUs, I think.

    Also, if anyone knows, how can I bond silicon LED strips to rare earth magnets...
  15. Actually, the controller (it's not a controller...

    Actually, the controller (it's not a controller really but a "HUB," as it doesn't control anything) I am using (along with the Phanteks model) is not USB. It's SATA powered and the motherboard DLED...

    "Jon," sorry.

    I figured what you meant was that you can't just plug it into some boards. :) Hope you can comment on my solution! :) I just can't imagine that this feedback problem can be solved so...

    I'm rocking!

    I cut the 5V pin going into the controller. No feedback, and since the controller uses SATA for power, I only have the data connected, and it works! No more power feedback. All LEDs...

    Yes, I do have a Gigabyte MB. If you disable the 5V SATA connection, how does the controller get power?

    I was thinking about disabling the DLED cable 5V pin. Since it is getting power from the...
  19. John, if you repin other brands LEDs connectors...

    John, if you repin other brands LEDs connectors to Corsair, then you can use it with any MB. In fact, there s a whole subculture of modders selling iCUE adapters on Ebay and New Egg for MBs it does...

    Well, that's two DLED controllers that don't work. As above, one was from Phanteks and the other was just a generic Chinese model. Phanteks said that was one problem using their controller with a...

    John,
    Sorry for the delay. I was waiting for a generic DLED controller to test if it did the same thing as the Phanteks controller. It did.

    The poster at HARDOCP replied to your comment quoted...

    I am using a Gigabyte MB, and Phanteks tech support emailed me back and said that is EXACTLY one of the problems using their controller with Gigabyte r ASROCK MB's. I just bought a Phanteks 3 pin...

    If that were the case, wouldn't the SATA connections be fully powered and spin the fans up 100%, just like when you first start a system and the fans run 100% before the BIOS control kicks in?
  24. I'll report back with that information. I assume...

    I'll report back with that information. I assume that would indicate that the MB must be involved?


    I did some more testing.

    I don't know how that slipped my test. Maybe is was too late last...

    Absolutely the cables that came with the Corsair PSU are the ones I am using:

    This is what one poster said on HardOCP:

    "The SATA ports on the PSU are not actually separate. They terminate to...
