I don't like how bright the blue on the Zalman ram coolers are in her LGA2011 system, its a LOT of bright light on components that I just need to know are running. They are brutally bright.
We had LED fans with separate LED leads but people didn't like them so we don't sell them anymore. These were similar to the Scout and Storm Sniper fans with separate LED power leads.


Thanks for the comments guys, keep them coming.

Having the fans in my hands, I will say that they are just right IMO.

 

The only other possibility I see is buying LED's and fans separately. Some fans have holes in the frames where you can put LED's. If CM sold LED kits for fans, then you could pop in any color or intensity you chose.

 

Or leave them alone, because they are nice fans.

I like the Before better. I do enjoy having led's in my cases but I like to be in control of the brightness. When my case is too bright it can get annoying sometimes. When I want the case to be bright I usually turn my led strip lights on with a switch. Makes it easier to dim the case when I am gaming and dont want any distractions or for the nights my computer is folding and I wanna sleep without a night light tongue.gif

Thanks for the feedback, we were concerned that they weren't bright enough, specifically in the daylight.
