    Result! That actually did it.
    I had a look and they look pretty good.
    I'd be up for a stealth U9S too

    They announced these over a year ago - pretty sure we discussed it back then too.

    So, it took a year to get to market - I don't care about case windows so my standard U9S and U12S are just dandy. :p

    Nope, it was the black "chromax" coolers.

    Paul's Hardware did a bit on them at Computex last year

    A decent black design without RGB/LED.

    Yeah, making them black vs making them black and up to Noctua standards are two different things.

    The OP is a little tease. ;)

    I read the title and thought they were finally releasing an updated Sterrox 140mm fan. :(

    I'll be replacing my H110i GT with one next pay day! Been waiting a long time for this!

    They need black LEDs for ultimate stealth.

    Yes, absolutely, but I think that they Absorb rather than Emit light....

    I dunno, this is like when the girl you really fancy has a nose job, everyone says she looks better but all you can think is that she doesn't look like her anymore.

    If it's not biege and brown is it really Noctua? How is anyone supposed to know from a distance?

    White (supremacy) LEDs? Warm or cool...

    I think those 'BBB' LEDs have an event horizon...
