Cool in two ways!

Removing the ring of light is quite simple and replacing it on the other end is as simple, but just make sure all the holes align properly before starting to screw it in. Once that is done, you are ready to install it on your case, installation goes like a normal fan.
What's nice about this fan is that it comes with a molex connector and also a motherboard connector, so if you have an extra plug on your motherboard you can plug it in and it will enable you to monitor the rpm of the fan through your bios. The only thing you might want to watch out for if you do this is that because of the male molex connector, there's a slight chance that the pins get in contact with motherboard components, if you are scared, you can put some… yes, electrical tape to avoid this. Or, if you really don't plan to use it, you can simply remove it completely, but I advise to simply cover it somehow.
For the light, it's a different connector, which is great since you can control the fan and the light by independently. The fan simply connects to the inverter that comes with it. This package also comes with a switch to turn the inverter on or off, and you can simply place it where you would normally put a PCI slot so you can control it from behind the computer. In my case I plugged it in the same inverter as the cold cathode so I control it with the front switch that came with that one.
This fan is available in Blue, Red, Green or Tri-Blue+Red+Green Colors. The one I installed was the tri color one.
This fan can be bought at various computer mod stores and can also be ordered through IceTeks Services.
