For sure. There must be more fans than haters though 'cause let's face it they wouldn't have been in business all these years if the majority hated the colour.

It is very strange though. Guy who designed them originally must have liked the 1970s hehe.

Well I'd only use them for radiators really to save money. I have mine in a pull configuration so you can't see them at the top.

I don't really care for the for the color but Noctua does have the black fans and I have those as well. Amazing fans. Not as much static pressure but I do not need that for an intake fan
I recommend any Noctua fan. The Chromax line would be up anyone's alley.

The EVGA fans are pretty garbage, they're really loud and not that good pressure wise either... Replacing them with P14 made the cooler much better.


But CLC fans make little sense over regular air coolers unless you're short on space.

Arent EVGA and also standard EK fans for that matter made by Gelid which is a low budget oriented fan? (I am not referring to Vardar)

From what I'd seen on paper at least I thought they (EVGA) seemed pretty good pressure wise but maybe not, I could change them and see how much difference that makes I guess.
