not stupid but i wouldnt try it you could probably pry the h80 open some how and replace the led color but then you risk messing up your cooler just for a couple of colors.. on the bright side atleast its white and not like orange or something ridiculous tongue.gif

The H80 pump unit seems to be the same as the H100. I opened my old one to see what's inside it, looks fairly easy to re-solder new led's.

Hope this helps you decide. smile.gif

Oh, and when opening it, it's just held on with plastic tabs. You just push on them and the top unit comes off. Then unscrew the PCB.

If taking it apart is concerning you, there is a red tape for automotive use when you bust the glass on a tail/brake light because the law says no rear-facing white light. It's similar to the heavy duty clear packing tape but semi-transparent red. A layer(or two) that is cut just right to fit would look sharp I bet.
