Antec cp-850 fan mod

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know if you can change the fan on the cp-850 without cutting wires? I want to add a blue led to the psu, I understand that it will void the warranty, but I'm not concerned. The noise of fans doesn't bother me... (I have an antec 1200) I just want to know if it will be a sweet quick mod.

The fan connects internally to a 3pin Fan Header seen in this picture, and this picture. So you should be able to replace it just fine.

The fan only uses 6.24w's (0.52 Amps) so don't get a fan that has a larger power draw.

Staff forgo the ability of +REP (to receive) as we already have awesome badges to signify what we do

A.K.A. Don't worry about it, none of the staff can be repped and it's intentionally setup that way.
