Default LED Fan modding.

I am having a hard time finding crystal led (orange) fans in the 120 mm and 92 mm sizes. I have found orange leds. Is it possible to change the leds in fan from one color to another?

Thanks everyone. I just don't believe there are any crystal 120 mm with orange leds out. I may have to look at other options. I don't really cut for the UV led fans that are orange uv sensitive.
