    but... but... with RGB led your computer get 10 degres cooler and you win in all game... isn't it? :)

    Noctua is just silent and efficient, what shall we need more for cooling solution?

    All the PC youtubers probably just blacklisted Noctua.

    MORE GOOD FANS FOR ME THEN!

    Nice! I've always been keen on Noctua and their coffee and cream colored fans. Lately I've been using their grey "redux" fans though, which are just as good. Glad to see that they're sticking to what makes them, well, them.

    I know right guys? LEDs are so Y2K, maybe someday these children can have computers that aren't so slathered with LEDs! You know what would've improved all these builds? Some **** brown fans. That's what the people really want. Purple and green and ****-brown.

    Say what people will, I've always been fond of their beige/brown scheme. My room's walls are painted beige and have brown moldings though.... :nerd:.

    If they ever did come out with a gpu cooler, I think Arctic Cooling would give them a run for their money.

    Don't really care, gone through 6 Noctua Fans now, they all click at low speeds after a few months use. Overpriced fans that look like pooh!

    Noctua makes world class products and I'm glad they are ignoring the RGB fad. However the maggots 'n feces color scheme is enough to keep me clear of them in most cases.

    If you want GPU air cooler then you have Arctic for that. Their accelero series is by far the best GPU air coolers on the market. I remember getting the Xtreme 3 cooler to replace my stock cooler on my GTX480 and it kept temps at 55C with a massive overclocked applied as well. Even at full fan speed its extremely quiet.

    It was at the time the best £45 I had ever spent on a piece of hardware. Literally blew me away.

    When the RGB craze will fade away and everyone will turn to brands who spent their efforts to improve the quality of their products...
    Noctua has my respect, they stand for their opinion and concentrate on what they do best.
