I got a new HP with a lot of side vents but not an option to put fans on them. As with all HP, it is boring looking with no lighting at all. I wish to add 1 or 2 fans of each side and have them run at low speed to move fresh air in. The fans will be color.

Is there an easy way to put screw holes onto side panels to install fan? Could there be screwless fans out there. Either that or I could get lights and put them inside to show glow. Finally, is there a way to buy replacing side panel that is clear window to fit into store-bought PCs?
