Why aren't there 80/92mm RGB fans for the itx crowd??

    Try Ali Express. There are some on there.

    I suspect the market for them is simply very small. Take a list of SFF cases, remove all the ones that don't use 80mm or 92mm fans. That's the bulk of the list gone. Now remove the ones where the RGB wouldn't really be seen. That's another chunk of the list gone. Of the cases that remain, most have one or two 80mm or 92mm fan mounts. And even then, RGB fans in those positions won't be visible in all configurations. It's also worth bearing in mind that many of these cases are niche products, and not all customers will want RGB.

    Thanks mate, i've taken a quick look at Ali express, it' pretty dire there as well lol. Guess i'll have to stick with my 'yucky' noctua fans for now.

    You can pay extra for the Noctua black fans if you like. I think they call them "Chromax".
