Brightest 140mm?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for aesthetics here. The 140mm fan will be on the top-inside of the case (which is the only really dark part inside my case, and will replace a plain black/white NZXT 140mm.

I know there's a lot of good/silent 140mm's, but which will offer me the best blue illumination down to the inside of my case? Current blue LED NZXT 120mm fans I have are pretty/quiet, but their LED's really only light up the fan itself, and not the case. (plus, idk if anyone here's ever noticed, but the fans that come with the Tempest Evo look like swastikas xD)
