    can you mod a CCL to 5v? will it work still? Im not a big fan of lighting my case up to much! I think I could handle a 15" CCL if it wasent so bright.. to go with my new case :p :D.

    kk sometime I will order one of theses, maybe I can get it locally at this new shop.. I might need it for my new case since I dont think the hd grill area on my new case will let the led fan light pass to the grill :p.

    I WOULD STRONGLY ADVISE AGAINST "volt modding" your CCFL's.
