Has anyone changed a zalman 9700 fan?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
My friend gave me a zalman 9700 for my birthday...but he got a blue one and my lights are all green. Does anyone know if the fan is changable and if so anywhere I can get one?

I'm pretty sure the fand are inergrally(misspelling, FTW) a part of the HSF assembly and nearly impossibly to change on most zalman products, i may be wrong tho.

I love green as well, but mixing the colors actully looked prety cool.

Not my best pics...but old shakey hands lol, I think green would look better.

hmmm. I liek it personally, but anyway..


perhaps you can take it apart enough to replace the blue LED w/ a green one rather than the whole fan...

OBTW, a couple greed LED rear 80mm fans would add to teh uber greenness

you could use a little cable managment too but overall nice rig.

mod i, everything is modable just about, I dont remember if I have taken one apart or not, I know I take the fan out of my gpu cooler to clean it vn900 or whatever its called. It couldnt be that hard to take it out and switch it up,

You could possible solder in some different LED's maybe too. I would have to have one to tell you for sure though.
