I wanna know if I can change the stock fans to blue LED fans. I'm pretty sure there are other topics like this in the forum, but.....couldn't find it. Anyway, that's my question. And also, if you have any blue LED fans to recommend, don't be afraid to.

P.S. Will I have/need to purchase a fan controller and how the heck do ya use one?!

Thank you!

Get the H115i which is newer and replaces the H110i GTX. ITs also cheaper.

You can change the fans to other 140mm fans but take into consideration that the fans provided with the cooler have around 3.99 of static pressure, so other fans (ones with led) will underperform because of the lower static pressure.

This is a good blue led fan (but it has half the static pressure so take that into consideration)

This depends on your motherboard and the total amount of fans you are using.
