Help with choosing LEDs Coolers (Modding)

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I'm not really sure about the whole fan/modding thing. What sizes of LEDs fans do I need for the mobo/RAM, case, etc. Replace the panel rear's fan with a LED one?

I'd like to have LEDs fans. The colour can be either red/orange/tri colour or something else. I already have 4 red lines nano sticks on my list. Basically, I'd like to have lights inside my case

My build (I don't have them yet/didn't buy yet):

Coolermaster HAF X
Intel Core i7 2600K
Asus P8P67 Pro
2GB XFX HD 6970
16GB (4x4GB) Corsair Vengeance DDR3 PC3-12800
Corsair Hydro Series H70
650W Corsair Enthusiast


LEDs Fans on my RAMs? Possible?

Any ideas? Recommendations? thanks!

While looking at the page case. it mentions: HAF X- Up to 1 x 230mm red LED and 3 x 200mm fans
does that mean the two fans (on the top case) don't have LEDs?
If so, I just buy two 200mm fans with LEDs and replace them with the top case's fans?

So according to the website you have:
Up to 1 x 230 mm red LED fan and 3 x 200 mm fans

Can you verify this?
I don't want to give you bad advice.

Okie!! So it looks like you already have a pretty red LED in there as it is.
You just need 3 200's.

Newegg - Red 200mm LED

Is this what you are kinda wanting?

Thanks, but I prefer this:

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/200mm...with-white-led

I forgot to say, but I also like white.

HAF X or HAF 932? Which one is better for viewing pleasures (can see inside more) ? I'm still sticking with the HAF X tho..

Also, what about the RAMs coolers? Hmm... 80mm LED fans for these? I'm not sure how to magically put 2 LED fans on the top of the RAM sticks lol
Hm... yellow LED fans for the RAMs would be nice...

Hmm, I'll worry about these mods and strips later. But I'm focused on the fans now. Aren't there any LED fans for the RAMs? I plan to OC the rams in the future, so..

I have my RAM overclocked and I had no need to attach any kind of odd fan system to them. Plus OC'ing RAM doesn't really give you as much punch as OC'ing a CPU or GPU.

That's true, but where else to put the extra fans? might as well put them onto the top of the RAMs, and plus they would make the view look nicer
hmm... yellow or trilight 80mm fans... what are the brackets called that handle the fans on the top of the rams?
