    I quite like the Noctua colour scheme, better than having flashing LEDs!

    They've got a new 140mm fan coming out, 120mm hole-spacing, can't find the CFM rating though.

    aerocool
    the larger a fan the lower the RPM needs to be to move a given volume of air
    the lower the RPM the lower the noise ... as a general rule

    I use Noctua 120mm fans and they are really very very good, ugly and brown but very quite and shift the air very well..

    I only ever use them now.

    why? their RPM are higher and so is the noise produced.
