Hi everyone, I'm going to start building my new phantom 410 this weekend and I have a few questions. This isn't my first time building my own computer, but it is my first time caring what the case looks like and making some mods. I am getting the black 410 and planning on accenting it with gold (yellow if necessary). The problem is I am having a hard time finding gold/yellow led fans or sleeved led kit. I did find a Kingwin fan that is yellow; however, I'm not so sure that 40 CFM is quite enough for those fans.

As I see it I have a few options:
1. Someone knows of a nice quality gold/yellow lit fan
2. Some sort of gold/yellow led sleeve (would this be enough without led lit fans?)
3. Getting some aerocool sharks and replacing the LEDs (I'm not entirely sure how to do this, but I could probably figure it out)

So any suggestions or possibly any good brand of gold/yellow led fans or led sleeve? Thanks!

Components:
Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H mobo
i5 3570k w/ Cooler master 212 evo
AMD HD 7870
OCZ Vertex 4 128 GB SSD
Caviar black 1 TB hard drive
2x 8GB corsair vengeance (not necessary I know, but its pretty cheap and why not)
not sure about PSU but leaning towards PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk 2 750 watt

the psu should be good, i would get a Crucial M4 128GB (worth the cost) and get the Samsung 30nm ram.
as for LED's/fans i would either make a custom strip or replace the LED's on your own. youd get the best results

would you recommend to put LEDs into a non-LED fan or to replace LEDs of a different color (most likely white for the fan color)? would one of those methods be easier than the other?

Hi guys! I finally could paint the trims in my 410 phantom case and it looks exactly as i wanted it to be.

Here are some pictures of how it looks, BTW the quality of the pictures are awfull it was taken by my very old camera that has a huge color oversaturation, so the blue color you will see in the photos are actually a little bit darker. My "good" camera is missing so I owe you a better picture quality.

Thanks to everyone who advised me on how to do it, and all others to serve me as an example.

My 2 cents is that you should go with white led fans or non led fans with a white led strip if you're going to use a black and Gold theme... You might be able to find yellow leds that have a good color but it's going to give the inside of your case a washed yellow look which imo is not very clean... You could change out the power led to yellow though or maybe some leds in the front/top grill, just some ideas smile.gif

I'm starting to think you might be right, none of the LEDs I am finding give off the right color for what I was imagining. Really what I wanted is a dark gold glow. Another idea I had was to somehow give the plexiglass a dark gold tint, paint the mesh grating/grill dark gold and and put in white LEDs, but I'm not sure how that would work or if it would even look like I want it to. If that doesn't work I might just have to change up the color scheme. Thanks for the help.

If you're going to change out the color of LEDs in a fan, start with one that already has LEDs because they will have the recesses already. Adding to a non-LED fan would be a lot harder.

White LEDs with some metallic gold paint on the inside would look killer. You should check out Gold Digger.
