Case Fan Help (The FailComp Remake)

Tommorrow I am ordering my new case, the Antec 902 but I shall also be ordering some other bits with it. I want the computer to look good as well as perform well and I need some help doing so.

The case itself comes with:

- 1 rear 120 x 25mm TriCool™ blue LED exhaust fan
- 1 top 200 x 30mm “Big Boy” TriCool™ blue LED exhaust fan
- 2 front 120 x 25mm special black blue LED intake fans with front speed control

As well as room for an optional:

- 1 side (Optional) 120 x 25mm fan mount
- 1 middle (Optional) 120mm fan mount

This is all well and good, but I don't want blue fans. I would like red ones. I have been looking in a few places and I am having a bit of trouble so I am asking for some help.

Please could you help me find:

5x 120mm Red LED Fans
1x 200mm RED LED Fan

Here is the case review. Thanks for the help

Re: Case Fan Help (The FailComp Remake)

Any preference on the make of fans and noise level etc also budget all in all.
Are you good with electrics - ie soldering (I ask as you cud diy a fan maybe, one i have here by me, you can easily access the led and no doubt change it)

Re: Case Fan Help (The FailComp Remake)

I am not too good with the whole soldering malarkey as I don't have one, although I do know how...

I don't really have a make, noise or price preference, but I would go more on Price than noise

The case is 99 from EBuyer

Re: Case Fan Help (The FailComp Remake)

Judging by ebay your looking at around 8 quid inc p+p for the 120's.
Ebuyer do them but at a shocking price, overclockers about 12quid on the 120's.

Tbf google the search string and have a look at the companies selling them at the prices and go with what you feel comfortable with. Just dont, once you get them install them the wrong way around

Sorry i can not be more specific

Re: Case Fan Help (The FailComp Remake)

Really appreciate the help there Intox. Just looking at some Antec ones themselves. I have found them on morecomputers.com at 12.55each. Making nearly 50 on fans. If you can find a better price with Saturday delivery, then please don't hesitate to show

http://www.morecomputers.com/extra.a...+120MM+RED+LED



Antec TriCool Red Fan - 120mm

//Edit

Just seen on Ginger6 (ha ha) the same fans for 8.19 each

I can see the credit crunch isn't hitting you that hard.

Re: Case Fan Help (The FailComp Remake)

Found a 200mm fan from Coolermaster.

http://www.coolermaster.nl/shop/prod...roducts_id=471

The picture does it no justice, so here is a better one



19.95 Euros, which is quite literally 20

//Edit

They sell it in the NL shop, but not the British one

Re: Case Fan Help (The FailComp Remake)

You do realise it would probably be cheaper and easier to just buy new blue kit to match, rather then replacing the fans?

Re: Case Fan Help (The FailComp Remake)

Only thing is, I have a thing for Red LEDs. The screen I have (T220) has a red trim. I have a red Razer Diamondback, a Saitek II with Red backlit keys.

I think I will get the case for the time being, and see what it looks like in blue. If I like it, I will keep the lights, if not, I will change them. Saves money that way

Re: Case Fan Help (The FailComp Remake)

If you went with Intox advice about changing the LEDs, thats what...

5 fans, avg 3 LEDs each? so thats 15 LEDs.

15 x 4p = 60p

Bit cheaper then replacing the fans, maybe worth a look in for a try, if you about to put down the dough on the new ones with red lights in.

Alternatively, you could sell the old ones on eBay?

Re: Case Fan Help (The FailComp Remake)

I could indeed do both ideas

Is there any simple way of changing the LEDs (without me c0cking it up)?

Hmm... not a bad idea Neo.

Come to think of it, my step-dad is an engineer.

Rofl I fail at pointing out the obvious.
