    Blue LED's in front of Antec/Chieftec case?

    Has anyone here changed out the stock LED's from the front of their Antec/Chieftec case? If so, how difficult was it? I would like to put blue LED's in mine, and the front LED's don't seem to be that easy to get to.

    The front bezel on the Antec and likely the Cheiftec since they are basically the same comes off. The LEDs are just fit into a little socket and are held in place with a dot of hot glue. The wires are easy to get to. Should be pretty easy. I have the Antec SX 630. The Cheiftec is based on the Antec SX 1030.

    I've got a coolmaster ATC-710. It's a Cheiftec other than the front panel, and came with a blue LED as standard. Even if you don't get a blue LED on it, it'd be easy enough to mod. If you can spare the cash, I'd highly recommend the coolermaster:
