Looking for UV/LED Pink Case fans (140mm prefered)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I understand this is something few and in between but need a few of these for my next build.

I've scoured the web and found only a few possible candidates.

They are going into a Corsair 300R Windowed Case, 2 Front, 2 Side
Also being accented with 1-2 Logisys Liquid Neon Red, which are also very pink


- AC Ryan Blackfire4 UV lit Red In/Out 120mm

Which I hope have stock but are saddly only 120mm but other then that their specifications seem good have been told and seen a few pics and they look very pink when lit


Or
- Aprevia 140mm UV red (but sadly red LED lit)

Which look good in theory as 140mm besides only issues airflow is moderate at best specially for a 140mm, but acceptable besides the fact I'll have to mod it with True UV LED's to give it the pink effect, and also have no idea how it will look after thats done, but am definitely into the fact it has a black frame over AC ryan fan which covers the LED and leaves the pink fan.


So thats surprisingly all I've found so far, sure theres LED kits and stuff to light up the case but I want my actual fans to be visible through grill and or window without accents, I am a experienced modder but would obviously prefer to avoid it given unknown results.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You're about as well versed in pink fans as any. Last time I saw some here was when someone had disassembled and painted them pink for themselves. I think that may have been because their preferred brand didn't have that color option. Which is going to be the case for a lot of people.

I know I could work with the Aprevia but my biggest gripe with it, its too slow, at only 60cfm for a 140mm is terrible and these 4 fans will be my Only intake, I know that kinda fan would work if I could get the UV LED's going which I need to look into but I definitely want more power, and want the 140mm's to fill out the potential size.

So I'm scouring for similar Central UV Red fans, Including 120mm at this point too, I could paint the outside black if it came to it I just wanted the effect of JUST the UV of the fan rather the entire case around the fan glowing, I know I'm sounding picky but I know how to do my modding just trying to see if theres anything I could do to find hopefully a better performance 140mm fan for what I want to do.

I guess I should maybe scamper over to case modding for this since idk if between the fans what to do. The 120mm is more powerful and more then acceptable noise levels but is a 120mm so it doesn't fill out as nice, I can paint the shroud black easily without even taking off the blade, but on flip side expensive and hard to obtain.

Where I can get aprevia's for fairly cheap seen them for like 6$ a piece which is great but would have to mod the LED's which is doable but biggest thing it isn't delivering the performance I'd want, minimum 70+ CFM since they'll likely go onto a fan controller down road

Had a thought since I've looked high and low for answers, and I am Really wanting to go for a specific effect, vs the Traditional LED blend where 4+ stripes go across the fan.

Instead looking for more of a UV reactive look, and to achieve that I know I need it to be Clear at least on the part I want to glow.
So I was thinking and looking at alot of the people painting their fans and when done right definitely seem to turn out looking fantastic, I'd want to probably do 4-6 of these fans.

So I would need to use fan that preferably 140mm, clear, and is decent quality, These case fans will be on a fan controller, and Non-LED lit, so Speed doesn't matter as long as they can perform well if needed.

Something like these, Could be possible that adding UV led's would further enhance the effect too, or white LED's might help make the effect more powerful?

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835146023



And honestly looking around seems like one of the best fans I can get as far as airflow/LED/clear fan, and black shroud.

Then only questions comes, how should I go about painting them, and if anyone has tried doing invisible UV reactive things, I was thinking like Nail polishes since those are very light, or there are also some spray on ones that are little more mixed in review I've found so far, biggest concern is that I think I need a spray to get a even coat, or if there would be a safe application method for any liquid paints (must be invisible so when UV light hits it it can spread through the blade.

Just made a large post on Yahoo anwsers outlining my thoughts so far on my previous idea;
Quote:
I am trying to makefind a UV Pink 140mm Case fan for a computer build, and more or less decided on these fans; www.newegg.caProductProduct.aspxItem=N82E16835146023

Now I am looking to modify them and using a invisible pink UV ink (may be red if it is true red UV, not orange), and need to dye the entire surface evenly as to not upset the aerodynamics or balance of the fans.

So brushing on something wouldn't be advisable, I was thinking soaking, or spraying on something would be the best if it would adhere to the surface permanently, or if it were powerful enough one of the UV markers perhaps I'm looking for the most powerful effect I can get on the clear substrate. And plan to use a mixture of replacing the fans LED's with UV ones, and also aiming UV LED's and UV cathodes near all fans to create a Even spinning glowing disc.

I just don't know what would be best to use to accomplish this.


What I've figured out so far of the options;

There is

Invisible UV paint www.amazon.comInvisible-Reactive-Household-Clothing-EraserdpB002OEPJFG

(reviews are pretty terrible, and the main site doesn't even sell a number of the colors now including pink.)

www.amazon.comLILAC-ReActive-Daytime-Invisible-PaintdpB00D486N0Gref=sr_1_2ie=UTF8&qid=1371358958&sr=8-2&keywords=invisible+Pink+UV+nail
(looks alot more solid description says dries solid, looks like would need to look into a cheap airbrushing set for some of these options though which may be a good idea)


Invisible UV Ink
www.amazon.comInvisible-Pink-UV-Blacklight-InkdpB006HMJR54ref=sr_1_2ie=UTF8&qid=1371358607&sr=8-2&keywords=Pink+UV+ink

(I know literally nothing about this product theres several other colours avaliable no reviews anywhere on the web of starlight or what kinda ink this is
www.amazon.comBright-PINK-Blacklight-Reactive-LuminescentdpB0065T8WL4ref=sr_1_5ie=UTF8&qid=1371358607&sr=8-5&keywords=Pink+UV+ink
(Looks better but again no reviews of what kinda ink and if it would stay on plastic surfaces)

Invisible UV Tattoo ink
www.amazon.comMillennium-Moms-Nuclear-Tattoo-RadiantdpB005PP1Y4Qref=sr_1_3ie=UTF8&qid=1371358607&sr=8-3&keywords=Pink+UV+ink
www.amazon.comTATTOO-Flamingo-Violet-Iron-ButterflydpB004U79DDYref=sr_1_15ie=UTF8&qid=1371358607&sr=8-15&keywords=Pink+UV+ink
(Have a feeling Both of these are visible inks I Know little about UV tattoo inks, how much they can dye something or anything like that)

Invisible UV Nail polish

www.ebay.caitmInvisible-pink-Nail-Polish-Invisible-UV-Nails-Gel-120685740109

(again know very little but I do know that nail polish applies very well and is very durable and very thin)



So between alot of those sure theres more nail polish options - or might even be able to airbrush certain nail polishes (probably not gel), what would be the most durable, and give the most consistent coat, and be the Best method to coat the fan blades, submerge, airbrush, etc


Whats important

Brightness
Consistency (even coating)
Transparency
