personally i dont mind the colour but its also a measure of their quality that people who dont still use them.
Its only that smallish % of peolpe who go to the trouble of picking the perfect components to match looks and performance that they lose out on..Maybe its time they offered more flexibility, a modders line where you could choose your own colours or at least invert the current scheme.
Now that would be amazing if they let you customize the color scheme on their fans. They'd have a customer out of me for life (they pretty much already do just based on performance alone)
They would have the entire customer base at that point...
No, they wouldn't. No matter what colour their fans are, there will still be people who think that their fans are overpriced due to the Noctua name.
Their new fans, NF-F12 if I'm not mistaken, are awesome performers and they actually look great (even though I'd prefer another colour scheme but that wouldnt be a deal breaker). It's just that the price is almost double of what other good fans cost. In here 120mm Akasa Viper is around 14 euros, Yate Loon around 5 euros, GT's 10-15 euros depending on speed while NF-F12 is over 20 euros. Even CM Excalibur fans are cheaper (around 19 euros) and perform (and look) better than nf-f12 do IIRC.
But yeah, I think their fans should be 3-5 euros cheaper for me to consider buying 'em.

I know many black fans and some white 140mm fans that I could recommend, but no black and white ones... I think NZXT has some, maybe Sharkoon...
