    I recently got the $15 fan with blue lighting in it. But the kit came with zero installation directions whatsoever. That does not go down well in my book. I did a search on MacRumors and a general WWW search engine, to no avail. So how the hell do you install it? Hector, if you're reading this, how did you install it?

    it's a bit tricky but not as hard as it looks you can get away with only useing 2 screws installing it from the optical drive side

    the fan annoyed me at 12v so i reduced it to 7v by soldering the connectors between a yellow and red on a molex y connector that sits between my optical drive and my hard drive.

    you'll get all the expert advice you need if you head on over to
    http://www.cubeowner.com/

    there's a FAQ and a great community forums.

    There are several ways to tap the voltage that you need, and you can get ideas for more cube case mods by browsing their casemod gallery. Mine is the backlit apple.

    Man. I hate it when companies don't provide directions for their products, much less, crap directions.

    It's working now, though. I had to get some help, obviously.
