I hard wired my front alien into the main power LED wiring I wanted it to go to the HDD indicator so the front would flash as my Alien "thinks" but for some reason when I tried that neither the blue LED behind the alien head or the orange HDD light on the front panel behind the door would light up. As an after thought, BTW, I just realized you did the port window. It looks great I am still tossing ideas with a possible extra window or vent, but for now I'm just going to settle painting it and more LED Accents I only connected the red ones for the images below I had them taped up out of the way with a Blue LED 120 in the front but that proved difficult on the side doorI'm glad to have logged in today. This post inspired me to check the voltage of the front Alien head LED, as my emblem LED was not emitting, and may be the same for the lower grill lights, too.
If you do end up doing a blue LED to your grill definitely post pics of how you did it. I did it with a LED fan but I'm not honestly happy with the way it kind of jams the door and makes it a struggle to open/ close the side panel. I'm also considering doing like an IR LED strip that I can change colors at will.That's a cool idea to have the front alien head-emblem blink as the hard drive is accessed. I really like the blue glow in the front grill, too. I think I'll do that on mine, as well. Thanks much.
