:?:

How can you see your fans, and why do you care? Personally all I can see of the fans in my case is my case.

What annoys me about Noctuas is that they're expensive and not really very good.

I don't know about earthtones..... more like flesh and dried blood I would say. Makes a change from dull black at least.

Or hearing aid colors... perhaps that's intentional. Noctua wants us to believe we need hearing aid to hear their fans.

They are the color of a prosthetic limb.

Notcua recycles disabled people to make their fans.

Same here.
Who cares about colour when you're not using them as table fan but inside case?

An odd choice of complaints

I could understand "overpriced", "not as quiet as an undervolted Panaflow or Delta", or "produces less airflow than a sickly mosquito"... but knocking them on the basis of color?

If you're looking for sympathy, try commiserating with the blinking light Einsteins on bit-tech, HardOCP, or thwee-dee gwameman.
