Im a complete noob to modding, ie I have never modified my computer in any way other than add new hardware.

My case is a COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05 and with the current hardware in it three of the five External 5.25" Drive Bays are open and I really dont see myself filling them at any point in the future.

Id like to put a fan there, namely an LED fan if anything just to add some light (the power supply I use has a blue LED light shining into it so id like to add extra light. Ive never done something like this before so im wondering if this is possible and if yes how do I go about doing it.

Id also like to replace the current fans with LED fans for nothing more than to add some cool light effects to my case. Is replacing the current fans as easy as unplugging them from the mother board and unscrewing them from the case or is there something more to it?

I know this isnt much of a mod but this would in effect be my first so im taking it with baby steps.
