The two pins I plugged my LED into give off about 5 volts, more than enough to run the LED.

EDIT: DON'T make me break out my multimeter again!!!

bust it out again and measure the current. 5v is perfect for a 5v led(what else?) but you need to make sure the current is sufficient as well.

If you want to make sure they do not touch, once you get everything assembled and working, dip it in the rubber stuff or hold down the trigger of your hot glue gun submerging it, making sure nothing moves. Ever. Ever again.

im all for hot glue if myouve seen some of my other mods. hot glue FTMFW

any way glad you guys like the guide if a mod loves me enough would it be out of place for the author to request a sticky?

ya but why be normal when you could be excentric? total 1337'ness

because heatshrink is removable, and coating an led in hot glue is a sure way to dim it to near nothing...

Fuck you. LOL. I hate HS.

Anyway, the amperage was .351 amps.

plenty of current for even ultra-brites. the most current i have ever seen an led pull was 150mA(.15A).

well if your power level is beyond 9000 coming from someones uber 1337 GTX295 then you need to dim it before you get a sunburn or fire. duh

I think I am going to run a fan off the VGA in order not to waste power. At least the fan will do something... I think.

-_-

a gtx295 puts out the same current and voltage as a freaking radeon 7000. vga is an industry standard.

My fan runs off the VGA just fine! Now I have a fan running, an LED, and I wonder what next...

Hmmm...

Just been looking into doing this myself too - but not for folding. Mine will be to convince a linux server that it has a monitor attached. It resorts to 640x480 if it boots without vga attached and so that's all I can access through my remote desktop. If I connect one of these then I can remote desktop at much higher resolution when I need to access the server over the network.

Your connecting 1-6, 2-7, 3-8 with your ~75ohm resistors. If you fancy LEDs too then pin 9 normally carries 5 volts, so you could run this through your chosen LED to grd (pin 5).

Just connect a monitor once (or a second cable, ie dvi+vga) and extend the desktop to the new (non-existing) monitor. After that you can remove it and it will remain active. No modding required:)

Assuming this is in reply to my post, I think either I described the situation badly or you haven't quite understood. Or maybe I haven't understood the reply!

It's a server based on an old P3 Dell with onboard graphics through a single VGA. My aim is to leave it running with just a power cord and network cable attached, no keyboard, no mouse, no monitor. I can access it via another computer on my network to do updates and change settings etc. However if the updates require a reboot, the vga driver recognises that no monitor is connected and it boots to low res with no options for changing res either. If the desktop is low res then so is the remote desktop.

If I boot with a monitor connected I can then disconnect and it's all fine but once I reboot it resorts back to 640x480.
