You could try something like these maybe:

And these CM ones:
Hyper 212 - Cooler Master
Though I have no idea if you can get the fan by itself, but it fits what you want.

The best choice would be to take a good black fan and then mod in some LEDs.
LOL I am actually using that coolermaster fan at the moment... its good, but I'm not 100% impressed with it.

So i've emailed Xigmatek about their new S1283 Dark Knight.... and if they cant give me a date, or provide me with one... I might actually end up keeping my current cooler, and waiting :S... which I dispise lol.....

But I triple checked and I found, I'm a dumb ass.... The TRUE will fit... and it will look fantastic when its in there. I'm going to email CM and see if they can send me some fans.... lol, and just remove the CM sticker from the center, or just take a shapie and color it black ;) but a True is now comming, 100% lol

I couldn't tell if you had the LED version or not. I know they sell a solid black one that looks like that.

I have a clear, blue LED one though. They have the VR knob which is nice but they get noisy on maximum speed.

Here's a sneak peek at what you are going to see in the next week or so....


I do believe, and Charles correct me if I'm wrong, but I am the first in canada to use MurderMod Sleeving.....

Another part of the update is i'm still debating as to use brushed aluminum colored plexi glass, or to use a flat black. The difference in price is quite substancial, however.... the look is what matters... i think the Black will work just as well.... however, the stainless steel ties everything together quite nicely.... decisions decisions...

Alright, so I got my new PSU in :D just waiting on the sleeving. I was hoping it would be in today, but it looks like it'll be in next week sometime :S hopefully monday.

But in the meantime, I'm looking to get some single bulb LED's.... NCIX has them for 5.99 which I think it kinda rediculous... really... can anyone find them cheaper in canada? if not I guess then I'm religated to looking stateside

Good Sleeving Mattlef, how much did the shipping cost you.. Please

Yup you will have to look elsewhere really.. It sucks because except for hope charles gets some collection, we have to shop from the US.

Good Luck Matt.. :)

I believe the shipping was pretty cheap. I want to say around 8-10 dollars tops.

Yea, I'm going to have to order the LED's from the states, but I'm not going to order individual bulbs, I'm just going to modify some LED Strips from Performance PCS....

Almost everything is ordered... just waiting for a few more minor details to be ironed out, but the majority of everything is being fabricated and/or is on its way...

Pretty cheap for the shipping, like CP I guess... Um.. check rpelectronics just incase you find something there. Maybe ask Charles if he has a line on something, he could be able to get you from somewhere, as they say, it doesn't hurt to ask..

True, but I doubt that Charles has a line of LED's I dont even think he uses them for his murderbox builds.
