I have 3 fans, and 2 case lights ran on that switch. The lights are wired parallel to one toggle and the fans are assigned each other toggle. It is not in spec with the ratings on the baybus, but never has been a problem. I dont recommend that you go over the rating of the switch, but I am an example that it is possible to do so.

thanks. i found some good baybus articles too. about how much would one cost to build. i can buy a 6 switch one for $40 with shipping. would it be worth the hassle to build my own?

ah thank you.
exactly what i needed, very cheap too.

what ohm resistor would i need?
470? i don't see why it's 470 but i seen it around a lot.
the hitechmods.com guide suggested something else for different LEDs. would the amount of LEDs affect the resistor?

also, any cheap place to buy good LEDs?
mostly blue and red.
thx all

Ok one ? I just got a baybus that's rated for 8watts per switch. On switch 1 I have a 120mm YS-Tech and on switch 2 I have a Delta 68c.f.m. and on switch 3 I have a 80c.f.m. Delta. The last fan is rated at 10 watts. Would it be ok to have it on there but only have it running at 7volts. Here is the specs on the baybus
