I actually like the colors myself. Quite different. Also, great CFM for such a low noise output May have to invest in a pair of these.

I recently read a review of these at SilentPC after Kemp recommended them to me - they came out on top.

This review confirms they are worthy of my mullah! I absolutely HATE the colours though...
