  1. I am looking for some 3mm 5volt LED's. I have searched on a few sites and most are either 5mm or 3volts.

    Any idea where I can get them?

    I am doing some case modifications, but right now it's classified information ;-). I'll put up some pics as soon as I'm done and let everyone see muahahah lol.

    May just have to result to buying a 3mm LED and using a resistor to compensate for it not being 5v since the power it will be getting is 5v I'll need the resistor. Will be so much easier than a 5mm though. I tried that and it didnt work, was too big. I could always sand down the LED to make it smaller, but thats not easy to do since LED's are so small.

    I was going to suggest the resistor, thats why I asked the purpose. I didn't want to suggest doing it if it was a replacement part.
