Hi mm1,

This chassis actually comes with white LED fans that are changeable, however will require a bit of disassembling. If you have additional questions, please feel free to reach us at 888-462-3899. Thank you.

Hi Ray! This computer should be able to run the Sim's game smoothly on Medium or Low resolution. On High resolution, it may shoot the FPS down a little bit, causing lag.

I purchased the intel 4820K with 16gig G.Skill Ripjaws ram. I have enough slots to expand up to 64 gig.
