    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.

    The LTT video alluded to black coating making performance likely to be deficient... and that it took a while for Noctua to g'tee the black units would at least be as good as the existing line(s).

    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. :(

    They need black LEDs for ultimate stealth.

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