RBG fans are really looking nice these days. I just picked up an NZXT H700i in white and black. I noticed it does have the CAM options so using their fans may work out best but I am more interested in the fans that are silent.

Magnetic Levitation and RGB, woooot? :? :shock:

Corsair ML PRO RGB

Comes in 120mm and 140mm sizes.

Hope someone will do some real testing - can we have RGB swag AND decently silent fans, at the same time! :D

They are not cheap, and I believe the maglev thing will not improve noise that much (as most of the noise of a properly designed fan is not coming from the bearing)

Or you could buy RGB fan frames

Something like the the Noctua Redux line would show off as they are dark grey, so will illuminate just a bit better than black.

EDIT
Though they can reduce the airflow of the fans https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/customer-re ... hisHelpful
