I'm not sure whether you can switch the fan or not.

You can, but it voids the warranty and I don't know if I'd open something holding that much power.

And it's not like you unplug it and it's safe, they hold power for a long time.

Plus, didn't I already linked you to a PSU with all your requirements? That should be enough. It's also at a good discount.

If you want LEDs so bad just get some blue cathodes and stick it on your PSU or something (I'm not really sure how they work). Then get a good modular PSU without LEDs.

no i don't think you can do that. you would leave open ended "Live" wires...which is defnitely a bad idea. correct me if i'm wrong...but i don't think you can.
