Noctua NH-D14 + different fans would solve that
post #6 of 9
Thread Starter 
is there a performance loss from the Noctua to this? and does the stock silver arrow fan get lit up from the surrounding fans?

EDIT: going thru the Intel cooling thread, i really like the Zalman CPU coolers but is it good?

Just equip Gentletyphoons on the noctua. Why you want the noctua replaced, if its the color just paint them over.
