are the green/red lights on them overly bright or ok? using anything to block em out or..?

REPPD!
Just take the LEDs out, that's what I did w/ my fan controller. I hate LED's though. You could probably dim them with a permanent marker if you wanted.

I don't really have an opinion on your fan controller choice, but I just wanted to say that I own the Rheobus-Extreme and it IS insanely bright.

The few times I've left my gaming PC on overnight to stress test it kept the entire room lit up in a blue hue (With only 2 fan knobs active!) I can't remember perfectly but I think when I installed it each knob had 2 LEDS (one on each side of the knob).

Every now and then I contemplate snipping the LEDs.
AMD, I give up.

NP on the feedback. I feel the LED's are just fine on the Rheosmart. both the green and red are not as bright as the LED's on the Rheostat. My friend as been staying over at my place and has the Rheostat(two of them) and they are stupid bright in comparison to my Rheosmart. Hope this helps Good luck with the controller.
