As for the why, I am experimenting. Having fun. Cost isn't a concern. I know how dangerous a PSU's internals can be, but I know what I am doing. I've replaced PSU fans several times before. Make sure everything is discharged before touching anything.
I am going to purchase a cheaper power supply, a Corsair CX450M, and the ever expensive but amazing looking Corsair LL120. I realize that I'll be voiding the warranty. Now, it looks like the fan has two sets of cables. One for the initial fan itself and one for RGB? So, I would likely have to run the RGB cable out from the PSU and into the motherboard. Another concern is that the fan header is likely a two pin, and probably can't provide enough power for the fan, so I'll likely have to run that out of the PSU and connect it to a fan header or fan hub. At least that would give me PWM control.
Is there anything else I am missing? Does it require an RGB controller? If it does, do I have to use a specific one, or can I use any of them? Thanks.
