|I want to buy bulk [ideally multicolor] LEDs, and wire them up cleanly in my case.|
I've never worked with LEDs, but I'm very technologically savvy and it can't be that hard for a person of intelligence and technological know-how to be able to do.
Basically, I want to buy bulk LEDs and wire them up in my case, and I'd like to be able to [ideally] software-control the color, if possible; or whatever way to change the color is cheapest.
Don't want to spend more than $20 total on this mod, and don't want to make the inside of my case ugly with hot glue or wires all over the place. If need be, I'll be happy enough with one solid color I can turn off with just a switch. If I can do this project for only $5 total, I will be even happier!
This is more for fun than anything, as well as learning about LEDs because I always thought LEDs are cool. I already spend over $2000 on this new PC build, so I'm not looking to throw much more of my hard-earned money into it.
