Hello all, I'm having a problem with wiring. I am attempting a DIY full spectrum led light, I have 5 leds from led group buy, 2 tv, 2-3 up, & 1 OCW. 3 LDD-H drivers, 1-1000 & 2 700's. Tv's on 700, 3-up's on 1000, & OCW on 700. I am using the coralux 4up board with 3 drivers as well as coralux storm controller with temp probe. Please have a look as I am new to the DIY community and can use any suggestions you guys may have. Thanks in advance!

Try switching the + and - wires on the OCW. I had this same problem. Evidently a batch of the OCWs came back wired:

- + - + - +

All I did was swap the two on the end (as my + was feeding the - terminal in my case) and my OCWs lit up right away.

It looks as though everything is in order. Why don't you have the 3-ups wired like the OCW, though? And just one wire from the right-most negative on the #1 board (Chip 2 of 5) to the left-most postive on the #2 3-up? (chip 4 of 5)

It would clean up the wires significantly

Is this what you mean?

Yes. As long as you attach the 3-ups!
