Any led fan can have the lights turned off permanently by clipping the wires to the lights, but that's not a good plan if you ever want light from it again. Kind of hard to splice those, though it can be done.

I would be happy if it simply had another front fan. One intake fan leaves me wanting more.

I'm a bit disappointed in the finish of this case, the paint is rough and all the dust particles get stuck in it, I don't know how to clean it, it looks horrible at the moment.

I moved the 1st top fan (the one closer to the front) into the drive bay area. That gives me two 140mm intake and one 120mm/one 140mm outtake fans. I also left the space where the top fan used to be open as an additional possibility for hot air to escape. This way intake and outtake should be about equal.

The removal of the hdd cage will improve airflow as well.
