Back at Computex 2016, Noctua showcased some heatsink covers that actually looked pretty good. The articles covering this said they should be ready for release by the end of the year (2016). I can't seem to find mention of them anywhere except those press release articles from Computex, have I missed something or are they still in the works?

I just heard back from Noctua support, they have been postponed but the new plan is to release them in Q2 this year. This is great news for me since I was torn between a NH-D15 for performance or an AIO for aesthetics (yeah I know a good AIO will likely beat the D15 by a few degrees, but whatever), now if I swap the fans out and get a Chromax cover, it will fit perfectly in my planned build.

I haven't heard or saw anything about them so I'm guessing it was just vaperware.
