I also understand if you see 1 style (in this case, blue LED) all the time, something new is very refreshing. I forgot who it was, recently, in this club that has a green LED build. I thought that was fresh!
i really wanted to go green but when i looked at pics, it reminded me of my raidmax extreme smilodon.

Ugh.. I really cannot stand the front of that case. For one thing, I'm not a fan of doors, and I'm not on board with the overall design concept. I could see why someone would want it, but it just isn't my taste. I think I'm sort of a "less is more" person when it comes to visual designs. Also, why a 80mm side fan slot? 80mm? Really?

to run across (5+5) 10v
I just thought of soemthing - if that’s the case, 5V going to the fans as it is, that means there’s already a resistor incorporated into the switch or somewhere along the path between the molex and the LED power leads.

I think I may shelve this little mod for now ... it’s turning out to be more of a pain than it’s worth just to get some lights rigged to a switch.

I’d like to clean up some of my wiring for sure but I think I’ll stick with the relay stup I’ve got to toggle the LEDs and CCFLs.

The Noctua though are through another company so they came from TN, I think, (if anyone didn't catch that I got 2 of these through Amazon) that may be where my new PSU came from.
Anyway, here's your link to at least $5- off:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...QK9YJHFN1ERK1Z

Oh, I tried using "those rubber thingies" that came with the Noctua's and all but one snapped like it had dry rot. I did have a few from when I bought all the other fans from Performance Pc's, I bought a mixed box. The short ones don't work very well but the ones holding in the 200mm fan in the front of my Haf are great. Now to buy more of the right kind, hmmm what should I get next? Oh, you can't use them on the top of the Scout anyway, they're too short I used the screws that held the stock fan in, it's still an almost silent install. Put it this way, her machine makes about 1/2 of the noise of mine.

I don't know man...
$25 is still a lot for a fan...

Should I just get an R4 or just some sleeve bearing and be done with it and wait till it breaks...

I cant find any ball bearing red led fans really

I would go with the R4, cheaper solution. And when it dies in 3 years, buy another one lol. Im also partial to the yate loon D12SH-124R, although you need a fan controller to tame it abit. I suppose you could run it at 7v as well. LMAO@raidmax smilodon

Yeah, well I've built so many over the years and fixed at least 3 times as many, friends, neighbors, family who say..... can you find out what's wrong with my computer?? I think the last one was what really blew my top. I built a system for a friend, set her up with software and internet equipment, took it to her house, put it all in, customized it, charged only for parts. Then about 8 months later she brings it back to me and asks me to see what's wrong with it.
#1 She smokes, everything inside is coated with a yellowish brown layer, so much so that the video card can't make a connection any more.
#2 Once I cleaned it all up and got it running again it boot to windows and then the virus checker popped up and said there were something like 2600+ viruses and 30+ root kit's so I tried a whole arsenal of things to eradicate them and the hard drive kept locking up and I'd have to reboot. I finally bought a program that does a scan of the firmware on the system and it told me that the chips had been written over. There is malware out there that changes the voltage of the drives and some processors and write to them so many times that it make the hardware unusable and this is what she had let happen.
#3 I don't just build a system and let someone have it, I give advice on how to take care of it, I supply malware software and tell them how to run it. I take care of the equipment like it was part of my family. So I guess I really took it personally and got very angry with my friend. Then she wanted me to build her a new system and said she'd pay for labor and software to make sure this didn't happen again. So I did but it took a lot out of me, I have medical problems that stress makes worse.

Oh, when I was first awarded my service connected disability I made it clear that I wanted a new computer, nothing fancy just a new one. I waited patiently and it never came. We're both disabled and one of the few things we have to have fun is our computer games and I couldn't play a decent one without putting all the visuals to very low. Other things take priority sometimes though and the car we had was an '88 ford escort hatchback. It was constantly requiring work and Mindy couldn't drive it because my heavy behind had broke the springs in the seat. Our couch was this way too.
Then I finally got my 18 years of back pay and one of the first things I said we had to get was a new computer. Mindy said no problem but I was not going to build it because she didn't want to watch me stress and curse and fret when something went wrong. So I did a whole lot of research and decided on which company to get it from.
When she got tired of playing games on her 17" laptop though she had no problem with me building it and it only took me about a day and a half including most of the software.
So we've both got our own computers, she can mess up hers and I can upgrade mine when I want, with the stuff I want. Even though mine has a 3 year warranty I can still change things and they'll still honor the warranty on the things that have not been changed.
