    I am currently going to be purchasing a Noctua NH-L9i low profile CPU cooler for a small form factor build. But the i am not impressed by the colours of the fan.

    I do however like the other black industrial fans noctua have, though are there any slim versions available?

    You don't want those industrial fans. They are not engineered to be silent. At all. Not even a little bit.
    You will come to appreciate the "dog leavings" inspired color of Noctua fans, as they are so high quality. I love mine.

    If you want to see Noctua coolers with a black fan, add your name to the 1000's of ppl who have emailed noctua to complain about the brown fans. I did. Then I learned to live with brown. I ran an NHD14 for six years.

    For what? Telling you to get over it in a joking way? :p

    BTW the (IMO misguided) choice to use brown and tan as their main colours comes from Noctua's commitment to being an ecologically conscious company. This is what they told me. The colors represent the earth.

    Play in the dark, like a proper gamer.
    Or use internal LEDs and the fans will take on the LED colour.
