Hey man, I'm loving the idea of the mouse cryo mod.

I've got the sqaure cut in to my mouse, and I bought a 3.7v blue led and a pack of 330ohm resistors. BUT I don't know where to connect the leds and resistors and such. Mind explaining? That was one of the flaws in your tutorial. =D

I didn't want to go for details because I have told the same thing many times in my previous articles. Just refer logomouse and Firewheel for example. Mices also differ so much so there really isn't no point on going details with certain model because only few readers will have that exact model in front of them.

If you have a multimeter you can find the powersource....or you just take power from the wires (red and black)

Assuming that you have a normal mouse with 5v... 330 ohm resistors would be way too much. I used 3.7v blue LEDs with a 68 ohm resistor. If your mouse is 5v... which... if i'm not mistaken, all of them are, you have a resistor WAY too high. You need a 68 ohm resistor. :D

Wrong. USB is always 5 volts. Only those old serial mice that used that 9 pin serial port used 12 volts coming from the port.

well u could make the usb connector 12 volts. that requires some unsoldering and resoldering the right pins to a higher voltage. plug in ur mouse and watch it cook.

Im not sure how but when i used the LED calculator it said 330 ohm but i later realized this was wrong. I think i used the calculator wrong because i tried it again and i got ~80 :D .
