how can i add lights to my motherboard and computer case.?

i want the led's to get power from the motherboard. i don't want to have to add an extra fan though.

You can purchase cathode tubes for a fairly good price. I see them on Newegg.com for like 6 bucks and they are a foot long in many colors. I have a blue one in my plexiglass case I built and it looks awesome.
They just use 1 of your 4-pin connectors on your power supply, and it re-routes power so you can still plug it into another device if you don't have any free ones.
