I bet they'd double their sales if they just offered their fans in black. Every time a post about Noctua fans comes up people complain about the colors.
Anyway, it looks
like they put some development effort into these improvements, but the proof is in the pudding. Maybe this'll finally be a contender for the Gentle Typhoon's title as best go-to rad fan. Interesting to note how distinctively ugly both are.
What I'm really anticipating are the Rotosub active noise-canceling tech
-based fans. That should be a real game changer in terms of noise:airflow. Hopefully a manufacturer like Noctua or Noiseblocker license the tech and build some products off it.
