the front of your case is read because it has a RED led fan... either you can buy the color leds you want and solder them in, or buy the color LED fans you want... what color would you want if not red..

i loled...

but seriously, replacing fans is probably the easiest thing you can do when building a computer... the hardest part about replacing a fan is managing the wires afterwards...


and +1, flathead ftl... i hate those stupid things... stupidest invention ever
