    noooooooo

    you can't change the colours... it's a Noctua.. it has to be those colours!

    brown and beige... they're virtually a trade mark :)

    I don't mind the colours at all. Mind you, I don't have a windowed case or whatever, so I'm barely aware of the colour scheme. But even if you do hate the colours, you could always go for the Redux or PPC lines, as they're a lot less... brown :D

    i hated it too....then I bought 3 of them..... never looked back.

    Once I'd used them, I reaslised the beauty in the design... .... It's now a classic colour combo :)

    Like a Landrover Defender Lightweight..... or a Suzuki Jimni...ugly as sin but beautodul for being efficient.... it's got a job to do and it does it tremendously well.

    brown or not ;-)

    As i like to have a windowed PC the disgusting brown and beige is awful and it matters not that they do a good job.

    brown and beige sleeving?

    Brown case, beige trim?

    (I'm struggling with brown lighting if I'm honest... )

    come on.........where's your sense of adventure.... your love of 1970's mens underwear?

    I believe in the 70's I was wearing thongs and they were not brown or beige.
