    yeah that looks fine... and as flix said... leds don't dim too well.. so there's no point in adding them behind the rehostats (i forwent leds completely in my rheobus setup... though i used a lm317t)

    Try it. Electricity takes the path of least resistance, so I don't think the LEDs will light on that circuit. But try it anyway, I could be wrong.

    If that were true, you wouldn't be able to run a 3kW kettle and a 25W light-bulb at the same time in your house :lol:

    use the brightest freaking led's you can possibly find... but if your fans are running at the lowest speed, expect the led to pretty much be off...

    I don't know...I assumed the fans would have a very low resistance.
