Will let you know if I get them how they work and sound.
cheers.

there are limited amount of manufacturers that produce fans in the combination.
Artic Cooling and Swiftech are about the only "performance" fans that i know of this
scheme.

to satisfy the scheme, you should look into a colort change for yourself. it's not
difficult and does not require professional help.

it is quite easy for fans. a lil patience, X-Acto knife, pocket screwdriver.
here is a completed version of myBGears 140 fans for Arc Midi intake:



i also did the Corsair H100 stock fans the same way:




as well as the power supply:



after researching a lot of time and comparisons, find the best fan and do a color change is
the best answer. due to the limited amount of performance fans and having a white blade assembly.

here are some for those Swiftech Helix 120 (only available in 120mm (at this time):



i'll see about making a guide on doing such a task.. there is already a similar guide
on how to "dye" your fan. but painting is similar and easy enough.

Thanks for your post airdeano, I knew B&W would look class and you proved it. Ru5ty those are good looking cheap fans but could you veryify where they are to be used, rads or case as I'm a bit hazy on the positioning re high air pressure / high air flow. Does high air flow even mean high pressure, do I want high flow over the radiator to quickly move heat and higher positive pressure for the case. If I'm reading (youtubing) to much into this and the margins for all this don't make big difference so I can buy just any fan then great.

Again thanks for all the help guys.

first of all these r not cheap fans , it's bitfenix spectres and perform really well as case fans.
if u want the fans for cooling a radiator then high static pressure fans is what u need .
any fans with static pressure higher than 2-2.5 mmH2O will do the job.
get the Akasa Vipers. (2.98 mm H2O) or the corsair SPs and spray-paint the blades.

Cheap as chips but what about Arctic F12'14s?
I've no idea how well they perform on a rad but I've got one on my noctua air cooler, and it's pretty quiet (the other noctua fan is keeping my folding rig cool)

the AF12PWM is quite a good little fan. the only issue i saw in a medium overclock
on a rs240 the high temperatures weren't falling as with the noctua or GT-15.
the PWM was great, but it lost some zing at the top of the temperature range.
id use them for a HSF cooler and maybe a 4.5 SB/IB overclock on a low vcore
over-volt. i hadnt had the chance to get the F14 yet, availability was not good
in the states a month or two ago.
