Yellow LED's??
« on: October 04, 2003, 08:41:13 PM »

Anyone have any luck with yellow led's?  I just bought a bunch and thought that they would be more yellow.  They seem to be a yellow/orange.  I was hoping to get a yellow yellow, like the color of this  smiley:  :-?

Any input?

you will want to get the kind of LED's that have a clear housing and emit a yellow light, not the kind with a yellow housing. I have had better luck with those kind if LED's.

Yea, that is what I thought when I bought them, so I did end up getting the clear ones.  I would hate to see what the yellow ones would look like.  I got them from superbrightleds.com

I have yet to actually hook them up how I wanted to, so they may end up working but not exactly what I thought.

Yellow tends to be a lil bit orange and orange a lil bit red.

Yea that sucks, cause I wanted to stay away from blue and green, since EVERYONE uses those.

Wish there was something else to do.  I will try the yellow for now, but if I don't like it I might just have to go with blue and/or green, since those are 2 of my 3 fav colors.  Bet you can guess what my other one is.

Try a reseller that specifies the wavelength of light.  Yellow is around 600 nanometers.

Well as far as mods go, I am not totally set on one particular thing yet.  I still have to sit down and wire some of those yellow leds up and see how it looks first.  I will definately post pics if I start moddin anything.

Earlier in the year I purchased a yellow bicycle (Cannondale R2000) and it looks tight.  I just wanted to do something with my comp that resembled the color scheme.

So I purchased  a black case, but maybe I should have gotten the yellow one, not sure.  Case is a Chieftec Matrix MX black/silver.

Anyways, if I find a good site for "true" yellow leds I will let ya know.
