really depends where you wanna keep the rig... because the human eye tends towards the yellow end of the spectrum, blue seems much fresher to our eyes, and is thus (often) seen as soothing... but if you wanna keep your rig where you sleep its red all the way... for the same reason, human eyes acclimate to red light much more rapidly, and as such a red light will cause your pupils to contract almost 55% less than a blue light (and about 75% less than a white light) of equal luminosity... blue is generally used for dusk/night defense applications because it blends alot better with the surrounding environment in low light conditions...

so really red or blue will accent your rig nicely... it just depends where you wanna keep it

Yeah umm, I hope you realize those specs are a bunch of crap.

Thermaltakes from what I've seen, either blow way less air than they say in the case of most their fans, or in the case of their thunderblades, are way louder than the 28db they market them as.

SilenX iExtrema fans... powerful and quiet (the SPL readings are in an anechoic chamber from 1m)

blue -> Newegg.com - SilenX IXP-74-14B 120mm Blue LED Case Fan - Case Fans

green -> Newegg.com - SilenX IXP-74-14G 120mm Green LED Case Fan - Case Fans

90 CFM model... but black -> Newegg.com - SilenX IXP-76-18 120mm Case Fan - Case Fans

you can grab those for $20 each (kinda pricey... i know) and the transparent ones you can grab a few LEDs of your choice for $1-2 each and swap the stock LEDs out

EDIT: i forgot to mention these get alot of complaints about build quality... to make sure these last as long as possible (and they will last quite long and stay quiet), ensure that they are level across all planes when you install them, else the bearing gets somewhat noisy and will eventually fail

God no, those are honestly terrible terrible fans.

The specs are total ******** and especially in water cooling they have hardly any static pressure which makes them useless for radiators.

If your going to drop anywhere near that much of a fan, do yourself a favor and get a real performance fan.

These guys really do perform at their rated specs and are well sought after.
