    attaching led to non-led fan help

    Is this possible? Attaching some leds to a stock black fan instead of buying a new led fan? Where would you attach the leds to and how many is too much on one fan? Thanks.

    It wouldn't make much sense, since LED fans use the clear plastic to show off the light. The only way to do it would be to drill some holes in the casing of the fan, put some LEDs in, and wire them to a molex connector with maybe a resistor in the line to reduce the current.

    You would be further ahead by buying LED fans.

    Aw that's kinda too flashy for what i was thinking in mind. Guess i'll just get some normal led fans from svc. They're pretty cheap.
