    Still hideous looking. Is it so hard to release black versions (or black&white/white)?
    Why they keep insisting on this silly diarrhea colour scheme that doesn't fit with anything.

    Im sure they will eventually have different colors. Having there brown fans land on all the review sites is pretty smart banding wise.

    Everyone knows beige and brown just work better! ;)
    This color scheme matches every beige case from the 90s. It's called "vintage".
    On a serious note, Noctua makes the best PC fans money can buy. Plus, they do look less than ugly with cold cathode or LED lighting in the case.

    I honestly don't mind the colors.. my case has a black interior and the noctua fans I have look fine through the window imo. They'll probably do Chromax black variants of these at some point in the future.. the color scheme is just branding, which is obviously super effective because every time noctua fans get posted people bring it up.

    Why would I want to use 120mm fans on a radiator designed for 140mm fans? Using 140mm fans would obviously be a far superior choice.

    Yeah I just requested a kit, it'll be tricky to review but we'll see.

    Better than everything being RGB'ed to hell and back, or the same boring black or red color schemes.

    It's called standing out from the crowd. When you see a Noctua fan you know it's a Noctua fan. When you see a boring old black fan you don't know what brand it is.

    I wish Noctua looked into GPU Coolers.

    Don't care for the color too much but it doesn't bother me and I don't hate it.

    I'll be upgrading all my NF-F12s for these bad boys.

    Yeah, I'll do the same once my NF-F12s cease to work. It might take some years, though...

    if you like to spend hrs looking at your computer rather than using it - look elsewhere!

    I myself fit into the use category, color, who cares? Its what it does, therefore, Noctua fans have been my choice for so many yrs, since they came out, i think :)

    Leave the colour alone, when someone sees the inside of my case, or selling a rig, they know i use good parts :D

    The fact alone that they make an adapter probably means they won't be making a new 140mm fan very soon, eh? Too bad. :(

    Send me your bill for doing accoustics and sound reviews with frequency characteristics like I saw it on another site (not sure I'm supposed to say the name). :D
    No, serious, I know it's too much work to really set those things up, they had their own silent chamber, and specialised osciloscopes etc. to test it all out, best fan reviews I ever saw, really detailed. I understand that it's too much to do for just fans, and you'd have to do that for each fan that comes in and so on.


    There's some people that put Noctua CPU coolers on GPUs.... :D
