Well, I would prefer to get all their fans in black. Not a delay of several years to get a black chromax edition.

This is the best news ever right before christmas. However, my wallet does not like it. :D

I just wish that they also upgraded their thin 120 mm fan aswell and also the 90 mm fan for NH-L9

The heatsink cover for the NH-U12S, will that also fit the regular 120mm heatsink (non-S)? I also wonder why they don't support their older NH-D14 anymore. There is quite a huge jump between the 120 mm and 150 mm coolers. The D14 was a good entry to keep in the middle there at 160 mm tall (compare to 212 EVO at 159 mm). E.g. my case could fit the D14, but not the D15. But I digress.

This all is a great first step of a new beginning! :D

No orange...

I am sorely disappointed.

Linus?... Is that you? o_O

No it's Titanium Grey and Gun Metal Grey. Because premium :D
But in all honesty, I also like the Redux color scheme. It matches perfectly with silver colored cases.

After all beige gives me confident. These look so mainstream. Please don’t add rgb leds later.
