Looked everywhere for this kind of fan, help kindy appreciated

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So

I got my phantom case, i love it, but i want some more light in it, now i dont want green, blue etc.

I want white, and there is plenty of choices. However, there is no one exactly the way i want it.

The frame must be black, the blades should be white, with quad white leds.
Think of the stock phantom fans, just with white leds (which they dont have)

Now i could solder leds, but i dont know how, and dont have the equipment to do so.


Does anyone know if there is any fans like the ones i want.

This is the best i got so far, the first is clear, and i dont like that, the second and third has the frame right (its black and thats good) but the blade is black on the second and blue on the third, i want the blades to be white.

If you guys know of any fans that suits my needs, prefearble in 120mm, 140mm and 200mm.

If not, is it hard to paint a xigametek fan. I mean can i take the blades out of the fan and paint, if so, what kind of paint do i need. Sorry for the all questiosn, but im a little tired of not finding what i want.

I looked everywhere for a black frame, white fin fan, with white LEDs as well and could not find one. Ended up getting the Xigmatek ones with the smoke gray fins.

But I would recommend just getting these and paint the frame rather than painting the fins. I've read possibilities of uneven paint coats that could lower the life span of the fan because of wobble.

thanks all, then i will go the paint route.

i liked that the akasa had white blades, so ill try to paint that one with a black bezel/frame. And ill buy one xigamatek also, and try to paint the blue fins white.

When painting, do i just sandpaper the surface a little bit before i start to paint? So that the paint will stick.

Thanks again all, much appreciated
