Nice, the market is seriously lacking in high cfm 140mm fans, hopefully this will be a decent performer, might swap it in for my bottom intake fan.

Not for those who worry about their computer aesthetics, though...

in other words : dam their fans are ugly.

Ah yes, but unlike other fans, at least they only annoy your sense of sight and not sound. Its a trade off, they are like the Susan Boyle of the fan world; may not be pretty to look at, but damn that sweet sweet music (or in Noctua's case, the sweet sweet music of silence)

I appreciate how quiet they are in my htcp but when I see them through my windowed PC case its painful.
