Default X-Dreamer II's front LEDs

Is there anyway I can dim the LED lights on the front of the X-Dreamer II with a controller that I can make/buy?

Where do I get a voltage reostat with a dimmer switch, or how do I make one? Am I suppose to connect all 6 of them to the reostat?

hmm one question, do want to be able to brighten it back too after you have dimmed it? like controlling the brightness of it?

if not, try a resistor instead... its so much easier to apply

Yea, I wanna dim the lights when I play games or when watching movies, and change it back when I'm not. Would a fan controller work for dimming the LEDs? From what it looks like, the 3-pin fan plugs have 2 wires, negative and positive? Wouldn't that work with LEDs too?

I can connect all six LEDs to one rheostat right?
