I like their fans but found the tan/brown color to stand out a bit too much. Black or the two-tone black/grey would be nice

Black on black here! I'm not a fan of LED Fans, because my PC is in my room, and I want to sleep at night in a dark room and not in a fake Disco club

Personally speaking, some people like fancy fans, some like solid black.
The more options you give a person, the more likely they will stay with you as a customer.

I think they should make different colours. They might end up with more customers.

Just my thoughts.

I have one of those blue ones, they look pretty cool. I voted for the black/black ones, because the only cases I'd buy are black ones and I don't think I would like those fugly Noctua colours messing that up

I love colour. The bergundy would look pretty cool with a burgundy coated inside chassis.

I'm pretty sure I had a thread somewhere on here, but here's the pictures:




Looks better in person, flash kinda makes them look bad. Though the glossy look didn't turn out very even for some reason. Didn't seem to make them run noisier or anything though but that's just very subjective testing. I have no equipment to prove it.

I used DupliColor Vinyl & Fabric Gloss Black. In theory it soaks into the plastic but I'm not sure if it really did completely as some parts scratch off (like where the TRUE clips hooked in, scratched it all up). If you're just soft mounting them in a case, or maybe even with screws, I doubt it'd scratch.

Oh and I did it during the summer with probably less than ideal humidity/heat. I know on the bottle it suggests certain humidity/temperatures and well I was right at the limit going by the Weather Network...
