What LED strips did you order?

I just built this thing, juanitos has a video that shows the 3014 strips being the best but I couldn't find any on prime so I ordered 5050 strips.

One roll of rgb+cw
Most of a roll of warm white
And they shorted me on my roll of cool white so I had to solder in a 6 led strip of the rgb+cw into one row

My dimmer switches will be here today, I will be able to control all the colors and both whites individually, thought maybe I could tune in the spectrum that way but I really have no idea how that works. If nothing else my wife got a pretty cool light for taking pictures lol.

Oh and it's powered off of an Xbox 360 power supply, 175 watts.

Good luck .

Hey, cool setup there Walchit! I also ordered some strips after seeing that video, and I've got an old Xbox 360 power supply laying around. Care to share your process? I'm a total noob with this stuff.


It's a little chilly.

There are a lot of videos about making the 360 power supply work, when u cut the wire there will be a red, a blue, three yellow, and three black wires. The red has 5v all the time, when you hook it to the blue wire it turns in the 12v power to the yellow wires. So yellow is + black is -.

They have different sizes, 150, 175, and 203 watts. Different stips draw different watts, so u have to figure out how many u can run on one power supply. You are supposed to only run your power supply at 75-80 percent of what it's rated for

Things are coming along, I didn't have enough money this paycheck to order another light. Hopefully I will next check. I need to start potting some these up. Roots are already extending out the bottoms into the trays.
