    Guys,

    Need some help finding a 230mm fan for a friend who wants to buy a TT Armor+ case but wants to replace the blue LED fan that comes with the case. He wants to go with a red and black theme with red LED fans and lights. He would even settle for a black non-LED fan but i cant find any of them around. I looked in the accesories section on the TT site but they don't have it eirther, its like they are forcing the buyer to go with blue theme (they dont even have replacement 230mm fans for Armor+). Places like performance-pcs that have custom 250mm fans dont have any 230mm at all. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

    Just remove the old LEDs and some other ones sure that be cheaper in the end. Even if he had to buy a soldiering iron and soldier + the LEDs i'm sure it still work out cheaper.

    Check your Radio Shack and http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/

    In that case i'd better tell him to learn how to use a soldering iron, something i need to learn how to do myself as well.

    You need this to in that case

    Lead-Free Solder
    http://www.radioshack.com/product/i...r=1&origkw=solder&kw=solder&parentPage=search

    You might want to get some flux. You dip the wire into it just before you apply solder to the wire.

    Here's a little vid for you, you may find one there for wire's http://www.curiousinventor.com/guides/How_To_Solder

    Some thing else

    Lol- That's what I was going to suggest- either removing or replacing the existing led's.

    230mm fans

    I am going to buy the Coolmaster HAF 932 case, and it comes with a 230mm red LED fan in the front. I want a blue one, but are hard to find, like the red one. Do I hear "Trade" any one. But, How long will you wait?
