I will have an extra 2 120mm fans soon (the 40CFM'ers that came with my case), and I plan on using them in a different case, but the problem is that the front fan is a blue LED fan, and I want to see if I can disable the LEDs without hurting the functionality of the fan. Logic says it should be ok to just cut the power to the LEDs, but I'd prefer if somebody who has tried this would step forward and say how they did it.

My LED fans have a wire going around them, just cut it I soppose, I don't know if that is what you posted about but it would work.

Yes, cutting the lead would disable them (and capping the ends, so no sparking...), but I'm not going to do it if it would also disable the fan. That's what I'm wondering about.
