Well what i do is just turn the fans off at night not like your going to see any full load while your sleeping. Im running with just the CPU fans only right now (turned off LED fans) and its working fine.

If you really want to keep them running without LEDs though you need to rewire each fan into a switch - so you wire them in parallel with the correct resistor and a switch.

yeh i guess i could just switch them off altogether for when i go to bed. Are there any fan controllers that u know of that could do the job?

The LEDs are powered through the the 3/4/Molex connector that powers the fan so its not possible to turn them off completely without shutting off the fan. You can however dim it by making the fan run lower speeds.

No, now he means shutting off the whole fan instead. Some controllers let you do that (at least mine does..)

You'd need to rewire them. If you want to toggle them.

Snip the LEDs if you want to remove them.
