If it was so close to being done, I'd consider taking it apart and drilling out the top hole, putting the lights on a separate switch is a good idea. I've got two 30cm Dazmode LED strips to go in. The thing is they are so bright! So I had a plan.. The strips are dimmable so I bought the 3pin fan header cables for them to route through a fan controller. I also ordered extensions (which reminds me, much contact mayhems as they are on backorder).
As all the 120mm fans are 3-pin I've got them hooked up to a Phanteks PWM module in the back, I was mulling over the idea of connecting the two LED strips to the same controller. The thought being, when the system is idle the strips will be quite dim but as it warms up they get brighter. Kinda thinking it'll get annoying... but... meh.. I'll see what it's like.
Any thoughts on controlling voltage without a dedicated controller? I could power of the mobo and profile them through speedfan...
