I'd like to cool my northbridge. I'm into case modding as well. So if I can, I'd like to use a 40mm fan with blue LEDs (or whatever color is available) to spiffy it up. I looked for a while and had a hard time finding something like this.

Anyone know of where to get one?

I looked on pricewatch, ebay, searched the web as well as other forums and I only found 1. Unfortunately, it was in the UK :eek:

thanks for the links guys

i might go for that 40mm multi-colored fan.. altho i'd rather only have LEDs of one color on it.. but o well, cant be too picky i guess. (so far I only have blue lighting all throughout my case)

If it was me I'd get this fan and point a LED at it.

You could get one of these and point the light beam at the fan.
Check out the other lighting stuff they have there also.There is a fan mod but I think it would be to difficult to do with out destroying the fan.Last resort to get one like mine is to buy the mobo.:D They have a UV LED there you could paint the fan!
