I've recently acquired a new motherboard for my PC which features RGB strip control. That's well and good but I have particular need to control a single RGB diode with that same header.
The issue I'm facing now is that I'm not sure what form of resistors I need for my single RGB diode. I know I will need 3 of them. I plan to use a female to male connector then into a ribbon cable to the diode.
My motherboard is an ASUS HERO Maximus Alpha: LINK HERE
This is noted on the Asus page: *The Aura RGB-strip header supports standard 5050 RGB LED strips with a maximum power rating of 2A (12V)
Here is the data sheet for said diode:
How do I calculate the resistors required to control this LED?
