    Default SO... how 'bout dem new Noctua fans that actually LOOK good!?

    Today Player.net posted an article detailing the announcement of Noctua's two newest fan lines: the Redux series and the Industrial series. Each of these fans addresses new segments of the market to provide not only more specific products for more specific needs, but to also address the public outcry for fans of a different color. The Redux line sports a gray frame with black blades and is targeted at those who wish to enter the world of premium case fans but don't have the cash for the top shelf gear, while the industrial lineup is geared towards enterprise use with it's 3k RPM peak and emphasis on extreme performance. The latter fans are colored all black with dark brown rubber vibration dampers.

    I was surely not a fan of the old colours but as always the proof of the pudding is in the eating.... It will be the age old problem of noise vs performance both on and off a rad. I shall let the testers get to testing to see if these can approach the abilities of the now defunct Sythe GT's

    The new colors are going to be popular, but the prices are ~same as it ever was~.
    I wish they were more affordable.

    They do look good though,........

    Well I know that the gray and black fans are supposed to come in at a less expensive price tag in comparison to their classic models. I just wonder how much of a compromise was made and where... if it was in the bearing itself (which would make no sense since it's a proprietary design) then that's dumb :-/

    Look interesting.. I like the new color. I wonder how the performance will be, I didn't find much details on the fan's specs, but hopefully we will get more info soon..

    Noctua has a good rep for performance and being quiet too. I'm sure that these new parts are good, but too friggin expensive when you consider others that sell for less and have 'as good' specs.
    I never used Noctua fans before, but it was because of their cost, and not their looks.

    I'd say if the performance is anything like the old ones, Noctua will own the fan market. I hated the color scheme until I owned a pair, then fell in love with the performance and chose to ignore the colors.

    I like the Noctua fans I have now and I will be even happier to use the black ones. Easy to use for projects. The grey ones looks cool but integrating them into builds may be a bit more work. Price is frustratingly high. Its hard to talk myself into buying $30 fans.

    I agree that the price is excruciatingly high on their original product line... but for me if the industrial fan is at LEAST the same price then I am all about them. if not then the Redux lineup is for people like you and me (broke as ****). I wouldn't mind the gray models in my particular build mostly because of the motherboard (Gigabyte 990FXA UD3 rev 1.1) and the color of the rest of the stuff I use (white), so they should integrate just fine for me. Just that brown/tan... so hard for me to reconcile with such an extreme use of otherwise neutral earth tones. it might be "just a machine," but it's my machine and I want it to look a certain way, dammit x-)!

    Holy s***snacks those industrial fans are expensive as balls! Redux it is then, that price looks WAY better to me x-D

    EDIT: One thing I am noticing on the main website though is that the Redux line only appears to have the NF-S series of fans present, whereas the IndustrialPPC lineup has exclusively the NF-F's in their 120mm lineup... yet the full selection image of the Redux lineup shows the NF-F's... I am so confused, though that's probably just what's presently available. Wish I had the gear to review those properly.

    You cant offer all the great features on the "budget" product line up. How can they get you to pay more for the "high end" fans if they are the same thing? Minus color. You want focus flow? YOU PAY BIG MONIES!!

    All I can say is the Noctua fans I have on my rad are the best fans I've ever owned, color be damned. I really like the Gray and black. May get some when I upgrade my loop.
