    Hi guys.

    What do you all think of these fans?

    http://store.antec.com/truequiet-ufo/

    [​IMG]

    The TrueQuiet 120 UFO accentuates all of these features with a translucent, glowing ring that comes in blue, green, white, or red. The ring boarders the fan frame and illuminates its blades in the color of your choice. The lights allow users to customize the appearance of their builds while enjoying quiet and effective cooling.

    It seems a bit counter intuitive? Having a glowing ring that looks awesome and can be matched to your builds colour scheme.. Yet then there's still going to be four red/orange lumps in the corner?

    They do look good though, apart from that!

    I've checked and we can swap the red / orange corners to black no problem.

    As said, sort out the corners and you might be on to something. They certainly look better than the transparent LED fans.

    LED ringed fans. Hopefully they won't be as noisy as the Corsair fans. Those things are just surprisingly noisy.

    I can imagine these fitting into a Tron-themed mod! But consensus is definitely to replace the corner parts!

    I'd also tweak the posters a bit to more accurately represent the colours? The first blue looks rather "blue" whereas the video shows it as more Neon/Traditional LED blue.

    100% agree, the corners need to be black.

    The blade pitch looks pretty steep - they look more like the Corsair's AF than the SP series. Maybe it's just the photos.

    They do look nice, if you proceed with the black corners as mentioned then I'd quite like a few. :)

    All the best.
