Just the fans look bad, black fans would look pretty good I guess, black and silver just like my Megashadow. The Noctua fans are very high quality fans though.

You could always mask them and spray paint the outside housing. The fins will still be poop brown though. XD

I know they may have wanted a unique look to separate them from others, but... brown? There are a lot of people who would immediately turn away, regardless of the cooler's quality.

Yeah I'd say if you absolutely must, just spray paint the fans but use as little as possible... You don't want a think goopy layer. And be very careful to tape up near the bearings/motor
