Can LED lights be added to Thermalright X-Silent fan?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've got 2 Thermalright X-Silent fans for my CPU cooler and there are 4 holes on them. Are these holes for LED lights?

Has anyone here added lights to these fans? The fan blades are a smoke translucent color and I think it would look really nice with white leds.

Ya you should totally go for it. Just make sure you ask people about the wiring and find out what the current and Voltage and all that good stuff about the fan. Good luck with it and I would like to see it.

Ya id have to read a bit about wiring before I tried anything. The leds themself are really cheap and id only need 8 of them, some wire, and resistors i think.

I think you should only use two or three for each fan. I think it would be too bright if you had all four.
