    Right, what is the voltage of the m/b led headers?

    I need to know 'cos I just got some ultrabright LEDS 3.6v and don't really want to **** them up because of a lack of multimeter!

    cheers - I promise not to ask any such dumb**** questions in the future :D :lol:

    The led header voltage is current-limited already, so what you measure depends on the load :D

    The leds should work fine, no extra resistor needed.

    Cheers cpemma - the LEDs are rated Vf= 3.6v @ 30mA so thanks for confirming lack of resistor - that's all I needed :D

    edit: can't belive I asked that without specifying current as well :rolleyes: Must be having a stupid day :D
