I would like to change the power LED to Blue, but I am electronically lame. I can solder but selecting the LED is confusing to me. Also does anyone else know how to add more LEDs to it? I am heavily considering the clear case from BDG but I would like to add some glow to it.

You could tap 5v of the usb connection and daisy chain some leds inside the casing. Make sure to calculate the voltage right and put a resistance accordingly. In case you didn't know you can buy a fan with leds in it. I found one on ebay , Akasa brand i think and it works fine.

I need that acrylic case to make it worth while. Its a little noisier than the stock fan but I don't mind, kinda cute really lol.

Awww the little fan kicked in. :tickled_pink:
