    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 want some form of resistors ong this site :http://www.kynix.com/Product/83.html . 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: https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/ROG-MAXIMUS-VIII-HERO-ALPHA/

    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?
