I was looking at purchasing this Zalman Fatal1ty Case:

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=pro...s_id=20785

Other than the price I think it looks great.

I really like the design of the Zalman CPU cooler but the problem is it only comes in a green led light which would turn that case into a Xmas theme. So my question is, has anyone or anyone that knows, replace that fan with a clear or red led fan?

I will actually laugh if you post that you bought that case, really, I'm not kidding.


Anyway, the Zalman is a great cooler, I have the 9500 led, which is just about the same, apart from the colour and the am2 bracket.

Ive used it to cool an overclocked & ovevolted winchester, x2 3800+ and a Core 2 Duo. Hasnt let me down yet.

the 9500 LED is able to be used with the AM2, difference is the AM2 version has Nvidia Badge slapped on it.

It just so happens I have that case and your are just like the many people that really dont like the case because the logos who cares about them it is in short a supior case period with or without logos sounds like everyone that dont like it are the type of people that buy a case without logos so they can lie and say they built it themselves or maybe wish you could afford to a budget that would allow you to spend that type of cash on just a case my point is laugh all you want if your childish enough to think its important to have a case that readers would approve of, you have bigger issues than what make of pc case you have, in short i'll put my case up with yours and ill bet you the only reason they would say yours looks better is the fact their as petty as you and would base their opinions on what other fellow case haters say I built my first pc using this case and when I was done i looked at it and thought to myself this system looks better than any than i've seen my only other choice would heve been zalmans TNN-500A to me any other case look like toys.

It is a damn good HSF. The green looks fine. If you don't like it then get the normal 9500.
