CM has the same problem, as their fans are **** and proprietary. The Bitfenix isn't a direct match, but 3 holes aligned and it doesn't wobble or make noise so I'm good. Just gotta be creative as it appears all 200mm fans are proprietary which is absolutely stupid. I figured wth, I paid 17 bucks for this damn fan, it's going to fit no matter what.

That's what I was trying to explain. The rig I made up is like 90% black, and tried explaining that you wont get everything 100% black unless you dig out the paint. Besides, the gold caps give it a real nice contrast without too much bling IMO.
