The only thing you have to be aware of is you can VERY easily kill the lighting nodes if you touch the wires together incorrectly..

I've killed 1 of my nodes already when I was adding the BYOL (Bring your own LEDS) to the lighting nodes when I accidentally touched the black and other wire directly :-(

But apart from that they work fine and I learn..

i can see the headlines now
computer burnt to a crisp because of faulty cooling node
small print that was ushered under the table
[user modified lighting strip resulting in failure
sorry to rant but honestly i think users of this should be declined any future rma's of this product
but that wont happen tho
they will come here whining what a lousy product it is with no mention of alterations.
the real concern is would you feel safe using this this way for a few measly lights and only saving a few dollars

Mine are all corsair. By extra LEDs, I meant the ones that came with the nodes. I put fewer one on one node and more on the other.

I ended up making my own. They have the same plugs and same LED's that come with the product, I just have longer extensions and as many lights as I want.

Cost me $25 for 100 strips.
