the rating was around 17db i believe? Either way thats nice and quiet. Hopefully there will be different color schemes in the future.
Well I kicked off a link of the review to Noctua yesterday to kind of give them a preview while it was still being proof read before going live. Noctua confirmed my assumption on why they went with a different color selection compared to what most use.
As for the colors of the fan, I can only confirm your assumption that we've chosen them in order to set them apart from other fans. Noctua is still a fairly young brand, so it wouldn't have been wise to come up with yet another black fan. That's why we've chosen a color scheme that makes them stand out from a very immediate visual point of view.
