    Because if you're crazy enough to buy it straight away then you can stick a garish LTT ornage sticker on the front of your case to advertise it

    Ah but you can buy fake stickers. We've all seen that bellend who puts M badges on his 318.

    When they do the NH-U12A in black, I'm on it like a tramp on chips!

    A welcomed addition but a bit late to the party IMO. Even though it might have been hard to implement as they said it was.

    Looking on the PC subreddits and some forums, that vegan joke is increasingly appropriate;

    "How do you know if someone uses Noctua?" "They will tell you"

    Don't need to buy fake stickers. Ford and VAG will put genuine Jag and Bentley badges on for you!!

    Actually the lighter shade did a good job of reflecting surrounding RGB lighting. As is, it just looked like toffee and caramel, which isn't a bad thing. I'd rather that than a load of logos everywhere.

    It'd be nice to see coolers/heatsinks in white - they don't show dust up as much.

    If I wanted sub-Noctua looks and performance, then I would buy something other than Noctua.
