Is there any way to turn the RGB fans off on a 460x using the factory SP120 fans? Or is there a switch i can buy and mount on the case to turn the fans off. I really want the 460x but if that doesn't exist then I will just go with the 275R. I don’t mind adding or rigging a switch as long as I know what wires to tie into.

Any advice without spending a ton of money for that fancy controller.

Reason is i want it lit up when i want it lit up, and off when I'm sleeping or watching a movie or playing games.

If you're using the Corsair RGB box at the back of the motherboard tray I think the switch on top of the case should work.

From what I have read it won’t. It has modes to make it flicker or something, but not turn off. cant confirm because I haven’t bought the case yet, and wont be unless its possible by rigging a switch or something.

Can confirm.

I have the 460X (and am typing from it right now). I just tried playing with the RGB buttons and I couldn't get the LEDs to turn off.

Your best bet is to put a switch on the SATA power that feeds into the RGB controller.

Alternatively, you can get the 460X without the RGB fans (which is cheaper) and do your own thing from scratch.

if these have an off setting (no idea) they don't appear to need software
