Default Case Light up question


I was wondering on all cases like this....

is the light up feature optional? In other words, when my computer is runing do I have the option of turning the lights in my case off, while my computer still is on?


Edit: I don't mean to be rushy but were going to be ordering soon, so jrop me a post if you know the answer

It depends on the case. On some you can, and on others you can't.

Okay thanks, how would it clarify if it does or doesnt in the specs. Like what would this case be, and how do I tell?

Your best bet would be to email the case manufacturer and ask them. You can always try something funky like connecting a light to a fan controller and then turning the controller up or down to bright or dim the light

you could go to o'reilly's and rig a switch on your PC box. That might be awesome! Hey, it's all DC power, so it should work. Otherwise, you'll have to ask the seller.
