But there is a big point for noctua, I really love their back plate. Covered with full rubber it's genius.

I have this cooler on my squeleton , no choice it's on of the best that fit there , all true I have to cut the frame of the Antec a little bit..the cpu is a e8400, I rise it until 4 ghz without problem, not it's stock. the only thing I did was to dremel the center of the back plate, I was worry to not clear enough that cap or clock thing at the pack of the asus board. No I want to find a better looking fan for it. all true the Noctua fan is very silent came with choice of online resistor for the speed. But the color

Well, for silent Gelid 1300RMP ( the PWM for a CPU cooler )
NCIX.com - Buy GELID Solutions GELID Silent 12 PWM 750-1500RPM 120MM PWM Control Fan 58CFM 12-25.5DBA HDB 4PIN - FN-PX12-15 In Canada..

Or the scythe slip stream they are also really good and quiet.
NCIX.com - Buy Scythe Slip Stream Kaze Jyuni 120MM Fan 1200RPM 68.5CFM 24DBA - SY1225SL12M In Canada.

These 2 guys are dead silent and have a good airflow. With that your noctual should be silent and have a better look, I can understand that brown and a kind of pink is a little weird on a skeleton.
