Default Black Noctua's Anyone?

Judging from the popularity and impressive performance of the Noctua series of fans I'd like to know what would you think if noctua released an all black or 2 tone series of their fans.

Thanks in advance,

Eagle Eye

The black frame and red blades of the new Yates @ NCIX look good
My computer is now out of site so it doesnt really matter

Black on black.

I am not a big fan ( fan get it) of colored fans, I prefere a darker case so yes I would buy 4 to replace my Yates.

I would definitely like something other than the current colour scheme.

Heh... don't say that.... you'd end up with the old flesh body colour as the blades.... :)

I like a bit of contrast so I voted for black with grey blades.

That's why I went with 'almost' any colour. I also picked the black/grey combo, be nice to see something besides black/black without them being somewhere between gaudy and noxious...

I voted for Black/Grey. Mind you I love the one set of fans Silverstone has with Black/Robins Egg Blue.
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.
