Yeah, but I bet you could ghetto mod them or something? Tbh, LED fans aren't for me, it would be much easier to fit some LED strips and mod the button to act as an on/off for them, you could buy cheap strips of SMD (surface mounted) LEDs and save cash there too.

i turned the led off when i still had the stock fans installed. i cut the wires powering led's in any led ive had and only used those fans until i got non-led fans. lights and all that other stuff isnt for me. i look for function and performance over everything. even my case is nothing more than a big white box biggrin.gif

Which case do you have? I'm a design student so looks and function are of equal measure haha!

Looks alright to me, tbh I like simple clean designs for cases, cases like HAF X etc don't really do it for me, but it's not just the outside of a case that I like. For example Phanteks cases are clean looking but their internals are not so nice with those cross beams etc.

Does anyone know if the new H110i GT 280mm cooler will fit in the top mount for the 330R case? I'm surprised Corsair doesn't provide a compatibility chart for their own cases anywhere.
post #4348 of 4610
Can the fans that come with the 500r be mounted horizontally? Anybody know what kind of bearings the fans have?

Thanks.

I wouldn't use them personally, they move no air and are pretty much rubbish.
