    I'm trying to make my own lit power indicator for my case, ideally connected to the LED headers on the mobo. The whole assembly is going to be like a long recessed slot, so I wanted to put one white LED at each end facing down the slot.

    The problem I'm having is that I can't find any in white, only red and green and with the rest of the switches attached like in the amazon link below. I figure I'm also making this harder because I want two LEDs running off the same LED power header so its going to need to split.

    Does anybody know where to get this kind of component? I can also do the wiring myself, but I don't even know where to buy the header connectors except to cannibalize something.

    The only thing I can find basically -

    outside of nicer cases you won't find many with white LEDs. your best bet is to find some 3mm whites and solder them onto the wires.

    Splicing two onto a single lead is also easy.
