    Dear Noctua

    I am, as many people are, in awe of your ability to cool stuff. I love your fans, I love your coolers and I trust your products.

    I am also, as many people are, a bit bored of RGB lighting on every component in the world, ever. Including not only PC components, but shower heads, taps etc. All the RGB's.

    And so, it is with a modicum of sarcasm, but a true deep rooted desire, I genuinely ask you this: Please can you make a beige and brown LED illuminated cooler?

    Just because.

    Thanks in anticipation, and eternal hope.

    What? Why so dismissive?

    Three main reasons for the head shake gif.

    a) Noctua have already said that they aren't looking at making LED versions of any of their fans in the foreseeable future.
    b) This is BT. If you want LED-equipped Noctua stuff then mod your own :)
    c) I read your opening post as being a bit of a joke, hence my lighthearted (rather than dismissive) response.

    Would 'warm white' suffice?

    Led behind light brown plastic would produce some nice looking beige lighting :)

    When I was fannying around with bits of coloured acetate colouring my rapid-i, my brother suggested I try modelling paints if it didn't work. Could try mixing some of those up.

    Just one more reason to love Noctua, IMO.

    Every bugger is producing unicorn vomit these days, it's nice to see a top company making a stand.

    @David , yeah, my thoughts exactly! I recall that they said that implementing LEDs would reduce the effectiveness of the fans, so they were unwilling to compromise the quality of their products.
