FAQ from previous post:

No input lag, everything is the same as when the desktops were on the desk.

I used 50ft hdmi cables running through conduit i installed in the walls for video, my older monitors required an hdmi booster:

I ran long usb active extension cables to each station and added a powered usb hub here: and

These are the LED lights, make sure to buy double sided tape because the sticky backing is worthless on them, but still worth it:

Price breakdown, purchased most everything over the course of 5 years:

My battle station: 2500
My wifes: 1000

Dozens of hours to set it up: priceless

Here are the server cases i used:

Everything is split across 3 810w UPS's, each is at about 25% load. I tested them recently and i can get around half an hour of backup power to all of the electronics in the house, included the TV's.

If you have any questions feel free to ask, it was an exceptionally fun project and the results were perfect. I was pleasantly surprised how well everything works after it all turned on the first time.

^ Exact same thing but a couple bucks cheaper and way more reviews.

u/threebicks · 6 pointsr/gadgets

Multi-color LED strip lights ~$25. You can set the lights to any color including a comfortable 'soft white' or have them continuously cycle or blink through every color in the rainbow.

They are super fun, effective, and cheap. Comes with a remote too. I used to think something like this cost hundreds of dollars.

u/x2mike2x · 5 pointsr/DIY

I am not aware of a way to wire a switch in a headboard that is up to code. You would probably need to attach the bed to the wall/floor so it is considered part of the structure, and any exposed wire would need to be in conduit. Can you put the switch in the wall?

Let me give you a simpler option if you want the switch on the headboard.

  1. Get an outlet to where you want your lights to start.

  2. Buy this and plug it into said outlet. Stick the switch to the headboard.

  3. But this plug it in.

    I have used these LEDs on a few projects. They are cheap and you can buy additional strips to extend them, or you can cut them shorter. Just make sure your power adapter has the current for the length you attach. They come with a remote which can turn them on and off and set the color and brightness. However, they remember the state they were in. So you could set them to a cool blue or pink or whatever she likes and forget about the remote. Then, with the wireless switch I linked, she can easily just turn them on and off. (you could always turn them on and off with the remote, but it's nice to have a switch because it is always in one place.)
u/[deleted] · 5 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Thanks man. There are a ton of different options, but they are NOT the Ikea ones. Those are over-priced and quite a mess to hook up.

Incase anyone is wondering how bright they are, it still adds a good deal of light under normal lighting as well. Here is a picture with my hanging lamp on WITH the LED's on.

You can get this setup in different lengths to fit your desk.

u/MinecraftHardon · 4 pointsr/cruisers

This is the kit I got. They run off 12v, so I basically cut the adapter and spliced it so I could run it into the accessory on my bike, which is always on unfortunately, but they're controlled by an IR remote, so that's what I use to turn it on and off. The adhesive on it is terrible, so I would advise getting a thing of 3m double sided mounting tape, and using it every 4-6 inches.

u/Kairus00 · 3 pointsr/Aquariums

I've used a kit like this in one of my tanks. It looks good. The way these kits work is you have an LED chip with one red, one green, and one blue led. Turn them all on and you have white! So I'm not sure what the other posters are talking about "not having white".

After all R+G+B=W.

Get something like this one in which you can control how much red, blue, green, etc you put out, it gives you a lot of control so you can get a perfect white.

u/Ground_Effect · 3 pointsr/woodworking

Not always. There is a remote to change colors/patterns. Here's the kit I bought.

The Flood Light is just sitting behind my monitor facing the blinds.

u/alexbuildspcs · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

Not sure why this is such a good deal when you can get same thing on Amazon with remote control for about the same?
These are the same but use 3528 leds for $16
This one is 5050 rgb led and comes with everything you need for $20:
Just wondering why this is getting so much attention because I'm in the market for one of these for a pc molex case mod.

u/Retrosmith · 3 pointsr/pcmods

I can recommend Phanteks fans easily. I'm running six of them and am very happy with the noise level. They're available on Amazon in a 9-blade configuration in 3-pin and a 7-blade in PWM.

When you get into this price range (~$20) you have a lot of good options though. I've had a few Noctua fans through the years and loved them. Their color scheme always put me off, but they have black and gray available now.

The blades on the Phanteks just pop off, though some force must be applied. No washers or screws of retaining clips to deal with. I've painted a few of those myself.

I've not worked with the r5 myself so I can't answer how doable your strip idea is, but I can highly recommend this LED strip. Over 16 feet long, cuttable every 3 LED sections, RGB and comes with a wireless remote that you can use to change your colors one step at a time in any of the three color shades and save color profiles. For $28 it's hard to beat. I used it in a mod I made for Quake Con last year, but I made the mistake of getting the waterproof version. The silicone covering on those is very thick and makes bends difficult and has to be scraped off to make any solder joints.

As for things to keep in mind, if you're handy with a soldering iron I'd cut the strip at your corners and solder the ends with some small-gauge wire to make your bends. Flat strip isn't made to bend along it's narrow axis like that. Alternatively, they have pre-made LED strip corners, though I've never used them.

Good luck and can't wait to see it!

u/SpoonsAtWork · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

It look DYI.
It looks a lot like my desk. I used to of these

and ordered some LED muticolor lights from amazon

If you don't have menards where you live a lot of the big box improvement store have them for about the same price or you could call a countertop company and see what they can do for you.

u/StyloV2 · 3 pointsr/battlestations

It is probably the dioder from IKEA since it looks like an IKEA desk. Could also just be something like this off of Amazon that he set up.

u/Testprints · 3 pointsr/bicycling

Here is one of the LED strips that I use. When you open up the packaging hold your breath as you get a nice smell of the factory the thing came out of, and it is depressing. leaving it over night to air out.

The LED track I currently use for the frame

I purchased some good adhesive backed Velcro from Big Box store and cut everything to fit the bike frame for easy install and removal if a light strip goes out.

I use this battery pack for the bike frames and the smaller ones they sell for the wheels.

There are some basic extender clips off amazon for the LEDs that "work" to connect the frame parts together but short of soldering all the extender clips are hit and miss, so find what works for you.

For the wheels you can do one of three things for installing.

Buy lots of strong adhesive ( a glue gun doesn't work that well and can melt/boil the glue tape the strips come on) and physically fit a square into a round hole. Glue the strips to the wheel frame so the lights are facing to the center but at an angle of the wheel. While the strips are bendable they are only bendable going up and down not side to side so parts of the strip start to bow-out but those spots can be forced into place with enough adhesive. The strips will start to separate from the wheel frame because physics dictates this can't work. It is what I did first to both wheels. The front side didn't work out but the back wheel has been holding together for the past couple of months.


Buy some clear flexible tubing from local box mart and some zip ties. Keep the protective adhesive tape on the LED strip so it can still slide into the tubing and use the zip ties to attach the tubing to the spokes. It will look like shit but it gets the job done. Also cut zip ties are sharp so it kind of turns the wheel into a shitty chainsaw.

buy a 3D printer to make clips to hold the LEDs to the spokes.

As for the power supply I temporary have some Velcro holding them to the wheel spokes, that I am trying to fix.

u/HeyItsJay · 3 pointsr/Gunpla

Dioders are quite pricey and I highly recommend going with these LED Strips since it is much better, longer and you can cover all of your Detolf with it. As I did with mine. I can get you a picture of both displays with LEDs on after work if you want

Also the by going with the LED Strip it's on Prime Shipping plus it has changeable lights and a remote switch!

And if you find Acrylic Cubes at IKEA I'd like to know aswell! :P

u/eegras · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

These but without everything but the LED strip.

u/gashal · 3 pointsr/theydidthemath

I see, sorry did not know that. It is a string of LED's, like this one but only 8 ft

u/MarmotSlayer · 3 pointsr/Aquariums
u/jacob4425 · 3 pointsr/DIY

I used a 16.4 foot (5 meter) roll and ended up cutting off about 2.5 feet, so probably close to 14 feet.

Here's a link to the lights I use:

u/fry133 · 2 pointsr/AnimeFigures

I used this LED strip

The strip is 16 feet long, so i measured out a rectangle for the top of my case, and the front length of the case. I then cut the strip into sections so i could run the cable how i wanted.

I used these adapters to connect each of the sections i made

For the connection from the front left cable to the front right cable, i spliced one of the connectors with some white spare cable i bought, and ran it across the bottom of the case (seen in one of the pictures. Then i mounted everything with 3M mounting tape, which is highly recommended. Let me know if you have other questions, as I made some mistakes which cost me some length of LEDs but was overall not too hard.

u/TacticalTable · 2 pointsr/AskBattlestations

I bought 2 of these and use them in my room. The adhesive backing is worthless, but if you can figure out a better way to attach it, there probably isn't a better answer.

u/chonger91 · 2 pointsr/HomeDecorating

Love the huge art piece. I want that. And I've always had a thing for those ikea wall mounted tv stands. Very sleek.

+1 for Narvinye's comment on the curtains.

My suggestion would be to add accent lighting behind your tv and along the top of the upper cabinet. That would look AMAZING in your already nice space.

You can use something like this.

Here's an example of led strips used effectively:

u/swordstoo · 2 pointsr/battlestations

This is the specific LED strip that I purchased. However if you have the know how you can try to purchase something off of this listing.

u/morpheus647 · 2 pointsr/howto

Something like this might be better for you if you are not comfortable with soldering. You always get the benefits of selecting whatever color you want.

u/SuperBossSauce · 2 pointsr/battlestations

This exactly. It has an adhesive side. I have a board screwed into the wall, it's wrapped around the board. The monitor mounts are mounted to the board. I'll try and get a picture of it.

u/Edathi · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Yeah I was thinking of getting these for behind my desk and these for inside my case. The RGB ones can be programmed for new colors and different patterns and they arent that expensive. And the ones for inside the case are dirt cheap. Just got a ssd a month ago and its awesome!!

  1. They are fucking amazing
  2. The LED's can last up to 10,000 Hours, so don't have to worry about em' burning out any time soon.
  3. They are super-duper cheap and make your room look AWESOME at night.

  4. The link....
u/streetmitch · 2 pointsr/pcmods

These leds are what i use. They are really bright have every color you can imagine. it does come with 16 feet, which i did manage to use in a full size tower. It has sticky tape on the back which is ok i still ended up having to use some 3m double sided tape. ive used these in 4 builds and i love them. ive tried cathodes its hard to get them into small spaces and behind stuff without either being able to see them or them not fitting. my cathodes also only lasted just over a 2 years where leds should have a longer life span.

u/MileyCyrusBongRip420 · 2 pointsr/snowboarding

Something like this I think. If you search led strip kit on amazon there's cheaper options.

u/AskADude · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Here you go
It's pretty long, but I have these behind my entire desk, annnddd it's kind of awesome.

u/runeblade265 · 1 pointr/battlestations

I used led strips I got off of amazon. I have two of them, 1 for each desk and I can change the colors with a remote.

Here's the link:

u/worros · 1 pointr/battlestations
u/AlphaQ69 · 1 pointr/electronics

I believe the entire thing would be the same color as the rest. I'm using this

Could you explain parallel strips?

u/Pyro_Games_Inc · 1 pointr/battlestations

The ones behind the desk are these ones that I got off Amazon. Pretty cheap and sometimes the controller gets messed up to where it doesn't pick the right color when you click on it but overall I think they're worth it for the price.

The Nanoleafs are the small triangles that I combined to create a larger triangle above the computer. Those can be found here if you want to take a look.

u/anarchyanonymous · 1 pointr/DIY

sure! Supernight LED Light strip.

u/Lenny1jz · 1 pointr/hometheater

I'm using this one:

I was initially going to use these for under kitchen cabinet lighting but decided against it. If I were to buy some for the TV backlighting, I would purchase USB powered ones. However, the ones Im using are controlled with SmartThings so I have access to it via home automation.

u/hitokiri-battousai · 1 pointr/Gunpla

thanks man, I planned on getting this LED kid for the cabinet since there is no inner lighting to begin with (I'd need glass shelves too). But this kit is programmable so I'd be able to set different colors to different sections to make it look like the laser beams actually gave off light. That'd be awesome to use like a neon/glow in the dark paint for the laser blasts so they would glow when the lights were off or glow with the lights being dim that way they pop out more... agh I want to go home from work now and start on this now hahahaha

EDIT: fixed link display cause I'm retarded

u/Mmm_dat_sound · 1 pointr/MusicBattlestations

I used this for under cabinet lighting in my kitchen.

u/MKEville · 1 pointr/DIY
u/KARMAgetsYA · 1 pointr/processing

I got this one here.

The strip itself has 4 pins: Ground, Red, Green, Blue. I was going to power it with iether the supplied adapter or another one, with some transistors controlled by an arduino. Arduino will be connected via USB.

Show me what you did! I'm interested to see how you pulled it off.

I was also considering using python to do it instead of processing.

u/dokupehakase · 1 pointr/Advice

I ordered the same strip from amazon as well. Has the same remote and same white box and same power supply. It's complete shit imo. The tape doesn't stick at all, and was in fact peeling off of the back so that there was no sticky side at all.

Even worse, they had sent it with all female connectors. 3 other amazoners posted a question with the same problem, with others answering that theirs had a male end and to send it back. Luckily I know how to solder, so I just cut the ends and soldered it all together. The green and blue wire was switched around for some reason though. I'm pretty sure that was a mistake as well, considering the wires are red green blue and black.

I bought the LED strip like a week ago, so this timing is really odd. I complained to amazon and they gave me a refund and didn't even ask for me to ship it back, I don't think. Please complain and get this shit taken off of amazon. It pissed me off enough that I didn't even complain expecting a refund, I just wanted the sellers to be punished somehow.

The lesson here is that cheap china shit shouldn't be trusted when you're dealing with potential fire hazards. You should be fine ordering something that isn't really cheaply made in china. Definitely not the LED strip itself's fault though, sounds like a short or something in the control box. You'd be fine buying something a little more expensive and higher quality.

Picture of my DIY soldering

and the amazon link

I can't believe Amazon sells such cheaply made shit with Prime. Prime to me means that it's verified by amazon as being at least halfway decent. Knowing that it nearly burned your place down makes me even more mad about this.

u/Fillelito · 1 pointr/AskBattlestations

I know some people that use these:

Personally I can't get them since I have to order from the version of amazon and these lights aren't for sale there :(

u/BagelEaterMan · 1 pointr/bicycling

What would you recommend? Already went through two of these and they barely lasted 3 months before dying.

Just needs the correct male plug.

u/melbournecowboy · 1 pointr/DIY

Just be careful with those lights in the enclosed box. Read some reports of similar lights overheating. Especially bad in an enclosed box.
Here is the product & review, I know they are a different brand, doesn't mean they didn't come out of the same factory.
Waterproof Flexible 300leds

u/bloodypika · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

If you want to do a liquor cabinet, here's how I would do it.

Find a place around you that will either:

  1. Supply and cut larger thickness glass (sheet glass from Lowes is only 3/32)
  2. Supply premeasured tempered glass.

    Tempered glass could run you a few hundred for 2 shelves, but will be safer. If you are really lucky, do a search on or other similar sites that sell furniture, and you may find some tempered shelves that may fit. You want them to fit inside your firebox there.

    Next, the brick is really cool and you should show it off. Remove all the fake stuff, and if the underlying brick is painted white, I'd take a steel brush attachment for a drill to it, and distress it, then paint it with a high gloss to really show it off and protect it.

    Run a new switch somewhere nearby. Run a line from it to the interior of the firebox. If you have access from above, that will be easiest(drop it down the existing vent), or see if you can come from below. Hide this new wire if you must, with a false back in the firebox. Wire this line to some led pucks or color change led strip if you like.

    Next, drill holes for pegs for your shelves. Insert your glass shelves. Looks like this space could handle 2 of them. Make sure you put some masonry adhesive in the holes with the pegs, because under weight, they may break down the old brick.

    If you want more storage, you could add any type of floating shelves to the exterior. A wrap around type might look nice on the corners. Just remember if you want them to support any kind of weight, IE liquor bottles, you better use some beefy anchor sleeves to screw them to the brick. Something like this:|1&pl=1&currentURL=%3FNs%3Dp_product_qty_sales_dollar|1&facetInfo=
    I don't like risking weight on normal Tapcon screws when you can use an anchor sleeve.

    I may be grossly underestimating how low this thing is though. Is it even going to be comfortable to use as a liquor cabinet at it's current height?

u/SpaceChief · 1 pointr/wow

Friendly bit of advice, you can get RGB cut-able LED strips with adhesive backing, power adapter, and a remote for around $20/piece on amazon, cheaper for shorter lengths and only a single color.

Great work, btw.

u/maskedmonkey2 · 1 pointr/DIY

If I where you, I would use this

Just cut to whatever size you want and solder the strips back together, has a nice remote to choose color and even has some cool effects. Pretty cheap too.

u/fericyde · 1 pointr/Mustang

Believe it or not, Amazon is also quite awesome -- not just for your everyday car parts but for cool raw materials. One of the accidental finds I came across was an LED strip that gives my new edge that ambient lighting affect found in newer fords and other brands -- and the color is configurable (so of course, I did yellow to match the rest of the car!).

It comes with a 12v power supply that you just cut away and wire into your light power source. Run the strip starting at the passenger side of the car around the console at the bottom edge and back up around the drivers side -- wire into the power source for your lights and suddenly, with a low amount of effort, you have footwell lighting that's color configurable!

I'll have to do a write-up of this now... damn.

u/kcan1 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

While I don't have experience with the NZXT Hue I will say I did something similar with this.

About $25 for 16 feet (more than any computer case will ever need) comes with a nice remote, is super bright (but adjustable) and in general makes things look really cool. Only downsides are that you'd need an adapter to plug it into your PSU (luckily I already had one) and the adhesive on it sucks but you can pull it off easily and get better stuff.

u/eluwork · 1 pointr/woodworking

If you want a bit more of a DIY solution go with these:

For the same price you get:

color changing(you can make them warmer so they match the light where the furniture will live)

4x the length

a remote

plus you can add more strips for ~$10

I assume that this is what you were looking for:
(These are what I have anyway)

u/devilsdeeds · 1 pointr/hometheater
u/alex-hacks · 1 pointr/electronics

Are these Supernight or similar RGB LED strips (non-addressable)? I've seen that a bunch of times; some in the middle will be a slightly different color, nothing shorted or broken.

If that's the type of strip you have, the strip is in segments of 3 LEDs each. You should be able to cut out that part (down the middle of the copper pads) and splice together the two pieces on either side with a little soldering.

Otherwise, you can replace it cheaply with those Supernight ones I linked, unless you have some setup where it echoes the colors on the TV or does addressable patterns.

u/iliveinthebasement · 1 pointr/battlestations

I used 1 of these and another 16ft extension. It was super easy to put up. I do recommend doing a test run of the stuff first to make sure it will work where you want it.

u/Havitech · 1 pointr/buildapc

Lighting: NZXT Hue or something like this (if the front panel conflicts with your case's design) is usually the way to go when it comes to LEDs. I've grown to see LED fans as an eyesore; you want your case internals highlighted roughly equally, not the fans 2-3x brighter than everything else.

With a single color-changing strip, you can route it to light up the entire mobo, have only 1 cable to manage, and you can change the color to your desire. Personally, I prefer redder colors at night, and flashier blues and yellows during the day.

u/bQQmstick · 1 pointr/buildapc

Yes, it is. Will this kit work? Does the colour change according to the screen?

u/LargeBody76 · 1 pointr/battlestations

Well, I used these LED strips I bought off amazon. They can be a pain in the ass because the adhesive isnt very good, so I bought some clear adhesive tape and thats solved the problem.®-Waterproof-Flexible-300leds-Changing/dp/B00ASHQQKI/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1418691604&sr=8-4&keywords=RGB+strip&pebp=1418691613886

u/AeonFX · 1 pointr/ultrawidemasterrace

I got this strip and slapped it to the back of my desk.

u/SuperRas · 1 pointr/InteriorDesign

To begin with you need to install a Celling Gypsum design that is suitable for LED lighting ... I recently fixed something like this ...
Then you need to install a power source inside the opening so no one will see it ... at the end you buy a LED strip and connect it to the power source ... LED strips come in different types and prices ... Amazon has variety ... this one is waterproof and changes colors ... once you hide the strip into the opening you can control the light with a wireless remote ... like this ... so the first thing you need to do is find a good gypsum celling contractor and finalize the design and work with an electrician in parallel .. good luck

u/Pi-Guy · 1 pointr/raspberry_pi

Thanks for all the information! This is all really helpful, especially that diagram, and I appreciate you taking the time to work with me on this.

I'm looking at grabbing these LED strips, which come with the power supply, and I've already got the raspberry pi. As for the PWM outputs this looks like it should be fine right?

I would also need, for each stair that I'd be working with, one of these. Would this be good? And am I missing anything?

u/Vinyl_Investor · 1 pointr/cassetteculture

I used this one except I used a smaller 12v power supply I had around since I only needed about a foot of the LEDs and not the whole 5 meters. You could use this power supply its just heavier and bigger so might not fit in all decks.

Oh man!.. that would be sweet to have a setup like that... I only have a cheap setup of some LED strips, some imitation Par can lights that rotate (were like $4) and a rotating dome light lol... none of us are willing to roll with the black light out due to the fact that we actually want to sit on the sofa and floor without the possible "oh wtf is thatttttttt?!?!"

Yes one min,

Edit: SUPERNIGHT 5-Meter Waterproof Flexible Color Changing RGB SMD5050 300 LEDs Light Strip Kit with 44 Key Remote and 12V 5A Power Supply

This one is great and cheap the remote and hues are awesome and it's really bright! Fits perfectly in my S340 elite!

Maybe a half inch apart?

This is what I got. The power supply and controller are not waterproof, but I tucked them up under a gutter where they wouldn't be exposed. They make addressable strips, where you can program multiple colors like red, white, and blue, but they are more expensive.

No worries, a quick Amazon search for LED RGB got me this which is pretty much what most people tend to use:

I don't know what country you're from though, so I can't say much about where you could get some.

Anyone have Multi-colored Led strips on their board? I wanna put something like This on my board, and i wanted to know how well it works. Thanks for any help

I need outlets because the lights I'm using come with plugged control boxes.

But I'm curious why you think I need 12/4 as that gets to the heart of my question.

I've been using these lights for a while now, and they look idential to the picture. maybe im wrong, but im guessing these are it.

u/constantino1 · 1 pointr/buildapc

you could do something like this

they can be cut and use jumpers and splice in wires to cover multiple strips from the reel in different spots.

they would all have to be the same color though, or you could buy multiple sets to have more than 1 controller, but thats gets pretty wasteful for a few 1' long strips.
