Why are noctua fans so ugly?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Why do they use brown fans? Why not make things in a more normal color?

I've always wondered that too, it doesn't seem to impact their popularity though.

The colour scheme represents the CEO's wife or something. Her skin colour being the frame colour, everything else being her hair colour. Oh and brand recognition.

They have plenty of colors. Don't like the looks, don't buy them. Or think outside the box and paint them. Black works with anything so it doesn't matter.

I think their color and logo came from this..

 

This creature is quiet and strong..

It's a bold branding.

 

Do you still cannot accept it? Then, you have to look some other coolers..

beauty is in the eye of the beholder

 

plus fans were meant to stay hidden under case mesh or grills, now a lot of kids want fans with LEDs and stuff and they have brands that make those, it's just noctua isn't one of those brands.
