Hey guys FYI I was able to repair this myself

 

The LEDs inside this case are identical to the ones in the LED expansion strips... And the lighting node pro can't even tell the difference.... So I took the plastic piece off 3 strips, folded them to the right length and stuck them on top of the fried strip... Worked like a charm, perhaps even brighter than stock because the LEDs are now raised closer to the strip!

 

I would imagine any SPEC case owners could switch to the RGB strips using this trick also... Very easy to do!!!

How did you go about removing the plastic from the LED strips?
