    Nah, the black series will stand alongside the beige. Choice is good, but beige is best.

    I wouldn't be totally shocked if Noctua just trolls everyone by not putting the black versions on sale.

    'yeah we could make them in black... but we're not gonna...'

    Beige is SOOOO last century... :D
    RGB is almost as cringeworthy... ALMOST.

    You kids and your beige! Back when we didn't have a choice it sucked! Oh god I just remembered cd drives only coming with beige fascias and trays.. paint them black or stick a cover over them.. boy, those were dark days.

    I had a gargantuan Sony thing. 19" I think. God am I glad monitors are flat and slim these days. And black.

    Kids. Kids, he says! I still have a box with spare DVD facias in it. My first mod was a blow hole in an old beige box with steel so thick I burnt out two hole saws. Admittedly, the second one was designed to cut wood, but I had to get it done somehow! Edging trim was only to be had by stripping the insulation off some solid core twin & earth - was a nice powder blue on the neutral wire...

    What was my point?.. Oh, yeah. Nostalgia. Nostalgia sucks the big one, and Noctua has nothing to do with beige boxes, dude. Don't go hatin' on beige coz IBM abused you as a child.

    You don't see me hatin' on sprouts. No, wait.. um, nevermind. :worried:
