    I notice the cases with LED fans and am just wondering if those are constantly on or if they can be turned off and how bright they are. I am just thinking about if the computer is left on all night and someone is sleeping in the room if it is bright.

    On some cases there is an option to turn off the LED's int he fans i have it as a feature on my Coolermaster Scout case its also on the Coolermaster Sniper. Have a look on Newegg im sure many other cases do this.

    would be easier not to have led fans.

    +1 to this.

    If you want lighting in your case i suggest Cold cathodes as im sure almost all of them come with a switch to turn them off :good:

    All lights on PCs are a potential nuisance. Apart from the sleeping issue per dm76, components like the "On" light can give out a distinctive glow. It's a "Welcome" sign to any passing burglar. I cover my light with a piece of card most of the time.

    I use a fan controller to shut off my LED fans at night. I have one non-LED 140mm fan on top that's perfectly fine for ventilating the case at idle.
