Would it be a good idea to switch the Noctua fans with NZXT black and white fans? I don't like the noctua colors, but I wouldn't wan't to ruin the cooling capabilities of the kit.

Lol, I think its a color people have grown to love. You know at first when you're put off by some funky colors, and you grow so fond of the product that you don't even notice! But different choice fan colors would be awesome!

You grow to love the coffee/espresso colour scheme. Also you can just paint the fans or light up your case with lights to offset the Noctua colours.
