Yes that is a given.. but its not rocket science. On a switch you have a constantly powered wire and the other one is only active when the switch is activated. Easy as pie. it will be an hour job. And you will love it.

Again. Are the stock fans really no good. As some of you say they suck.

Yes they suck and they blow. They are fans. They are not server high cfm fans but they do the job. and cooler master went for silent instead of windy. The case stays cool especially if you install the side fans.

For this effect I used the OCZ power supply with red light inside it. Two fans on the door red leds x4 per fan=8 + 1 12 inch Cold cathode at the top.
While that looks nice, i don't want to go all red. Think it will look nice if i put a purple 4 inch cold cathode at the bottom and one red at the top? Or do i need more to get that kind of strong lightning?

Its really not as bright as it looks I used a slower shutter speed on my camera to get a brighter effect. Yea.. the purple and the black light would go good in there if you put the Purple at the top and the black light on the back wall. I know.. You said you were not going to get black light but if you have any color in your case at all the blacklight will accent it. But otherwise it is a matter of what YOU like so try different light combinations. I always have a customer over for an hour at this point and we change lighting configuration with scotch tape and then when I find a combo that the customer likes, then I make the decision permanent.

i saw that kev b was just about the only one to have routed the 4 (or 8) pin power cord at the top behind the mobo:

original pics

Anyone know if you have to mod anything to get that to work, or are most 4/8-pin power cords generally not long enough? It seems like you could fit it through the big CPU hole, but i just want to make sure. I'm really close to buying this case, but I want to make sure that ALL of my cables can be routed easily. Thanks!

EDIT: Also, forgot to ask if anyone has put in a TRUE. Just want to make sure it'll fit before I buy
