changing fan LED color

I have a IN WIN Maelstrom Case, (I'd link it but my school has decided to block newegg for some reason), and on the side panel there's a 220 fan with blue LEDs, and I was just wondering if there's any way to change them out to green LEDs. My desktop has a green (Hyperdesk Dark Matter: Gamma Ray)theme, and the keyboard im getting has multiple options for backlight colors (logitech G110) and it would be cool if the colors matched.

and just as a general question, why does no one make full towers with green LEDs? All i can ever seem to find is blue. ive found a few green mid towers, but blue seems to be the most popular. why is that?

It'd be easier to get new fans.

Already been stated, change the fans. I had to do it for my Armor case and the results are worth it.

it because of the phosphor used to make led color. most white leds are just blue leds. to get red they just color shift the phosphor by dropping it. red led by color last the longest. orange and green have the shortest life.

If you plan on having more colors match you might as well get something like this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835234003

Unless you are looking for a project I would just change the fan. Someone like my dad though would love changing LEDS out of a fan..to each their own.

Edit: That's it, I'm buying one of these!
