    Yeah I love how the D14 and the Silver Arrow look, they look much better than something like a Cooler Master V6 which everyone seems to love.

    They're like the noctua fans. They're not ugly per se, but there's exactly no form of computer that blends well with them.

    Just FYI, with that setup/positioning your rear fan is doing nothing but obstructing airflow. If I had my way I would cut a 140x140 hole and let the Silver Arrow's 140mm fan push air out of the case unobstructed, but you can help by removing the rear 120mm completely. OR you can remove the RAM sinks off your Vengeance and mount the heatsink fans in push-pull, those tall heatsinks are really pointless.

    The melty blue fans reminds me of melted ice cream.
    The Noctua fans reminds me of dessert and deserts and burning fireplaces (ie, a fireplace on fire).

    I like Noctua-fans. Other than the obvious props for being different, I actually think they give ones computer a harmonic tint. But maybe I'm crazy or excentric. It's not unpossible!

    on those ram sticks can i just pull them apart?

    You could always disassemble the Noctua / Silver Arrow cooler fans and give them a thin coat of spray paint (NOT the fan blades, that could throw off the balance).

    I would totally risk it, painting the blades, for vanity's sake.

    I <3 the Silver Arrow's fans. Those things are gorgeous, and I agree with tetris, sky blue, melted blue ice cream, so gooooooood.

    Maybe it's because that blue is something that so many kids experience when they're little, a lot of baby's bedrooms are light blue (cliche!) so maybe that's why some of us just can't get over those fan blades. I'm also not adverse to the D14's fans, however they would not match well in a black case.

    Core i7 I7-2600K 8 MB (1949dkk, 366$)
    Thermalright MUX-120 black (500dkk, 93$)
    ASRock Z68 Extreme4 (1229dkk, 231$)
    OCZ Vertex 3 Series 120 GB (1749dkk, 329$)
    Gigabyte GTX 580 Super Overclock (3650dkk, 687$)
    Corsair Vengeance 2 x 4 GB (743dkk,140$)
    Cooler Master HAF X (1304DKK, 245$)
    Seasonic X-760 X-Series 80+ Gold 760W (1190dkk, 218$)

    Total price: (12323dkk or 2319$)

    I chose Thermalright MUX-120 because of its physical size. It doesn't cover any of the ram slots.
    Alot of Noctua's CPU Coolers doesn't allow the use of memory modules higher than 44mm!

    (Prices are from half a year ago)
