I just bought the CM Storm Trooper, love the case but not the red led's on the front panel. I am going with a black/yellow color scheme with a few white led's to kind of show off the motherboard I bought alitte better. Anyway back to the subject. The question is how hard would this be to change the red leds to a yellow or white led? Or is this even possible? Any suggestion would be great! I even though about a clear paint to possibly change the red to yellow but not sure. Any suggestions would be great. Thx much...

Red LEDs emit red light only. Painting over them with yellow will merely block a lot of the red light. You won't get yellow. Red, white and yellow LEDs are compatible as far as power requirements. Simply swap them out. I don't know what package size they are though as I don't have one of the cases. Should be T 1-3/4 (5mm) or T-1 (3mm), not some little surface mount stuff.

Pop that panel apart and take some close up pictures and I could tell you more about it.
