Default Case Lights

I'm getting a Lian Li case and I want to add some red LED fans or maybe a red neon light or something. Here's the case,

I've never modded a case ever so any suggestions?

Adding LED fans is mega-easy. If the case already has fans, just replace those with the LED fans and plug the wires into the slots you just pulled the old ones out of.

A tube light of any sort is pretty easy to install as well. You can usually just set it somewhere where you cant see the light itself (I guess that kinda depends on the light), and let the glow from the light shine on the parts inside the case.

Default meh

frozen cpu is so overpriced its not even funny

check out www.svc.com
you can get the led fans for about 1.50 in the 80mm size
and the red dual tube ccfl aka neon lights for 2.99 much cheaper than the 10 bucks frozen cpu charges
