What I mean is that can I just connect LED's to the LED switch rather than fans. I've got noctua fans for my case and this makes the switch on the case useless. Could I just connect some LEDs or a LED strip to them to turn on and off?

I did try connecting a Xebec LED strip to one of the fan connectors and unfortunately it would not even light up.
It could be an issue specific to that brand, but from my experience it doesn't work.

Do you use lights at all?

I won;t be and it seems like a waste to have a switch that does nothing.

Yes, I use the Xebec LED strip connected to a 4-pin Molex plug.

And is this strip connected to your 500r switch?

No it's not, the connectors from the front panel on the 500R do not seem to provide power to the strip. It's plugged directly to a 4-pin Molex connector from the PSU.

Could NZXT be anymore specific ? As in how , drill new holes ??

Here's the link.

Yea. You will just need to drill a new set of holes at either end, because the 400r and 500r don't have 15mm fan spacing for the 140 mm fans. It would have been nice if they would have just followed the center 120mm fan holes straight out for the 15mm spacing and would have just had automatic support for 280mm rads. So just pick which end you want to leave as is, and drill your new holes accordingly.

Edit: Strike that possibly. According to Linus in this video:

He does a x60 in the C70 which I believe to have the same fan spacing as the 400/500r and also falls into the needs to be modified category as well, but does no modifications to the case. He does only use 4 screws instead of 8 though.

Which brand LED strip are you using? Yours has a different connector to the ones available on my Xebec one.
