Zalman 9500 AM2 LED

Hi all,
Just built a system and have a Zalman 9500 cooler coming in the mail; the LED on this thing is going to be bright nVidia green in a discretely cool blue lit case (nevermind a DAMMIT cpu and red videocard) and it's not going to mesh well with my 'scheme' (the blue doesn't already anyhow but I don't want to look at a god damned rainbow)... anyhow, has anyone ever painted a LED and with what? Sharpy, paint, pen ect. Too much of a wuss to take the LED off the heat-sink also, I'd like to go about this as lazily as possible.

Did your PC go up in flames due to the flammable nature of the of the chemicals? <-really is my main question. :heink:

Thanks a bunch and here is my ePenis :whistle:

  1. cut the power wire to the led

    think of it as a circumcision and your eyes will only water a bit when you make the snip
  2. Thanks Outlander - I didn't think of that. If this color mixing thing goes wrong, that will perma-fix it. I think I'm going to cover it with a purple sharpy and hope for a transparent blue light :lol:

  3. get a blue led and put it in place of the green led, or cut the wire going to the led and place a blue led nearby, or get a case thats not see thru
