O_o Thermalright TY-140 fans are some nice looking fans... you must be crazy to think they're ugly :P
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.
This is my 1st ever build. (image too big just go to link instead)

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!
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 <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.

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!
