Corsair HD120 RGB Fan on a Noctua Heatsink?

Cases & Cooling - AnandTech Forums - forums.anandtech.com
I'm wondering if I can use the Corsair HD120 fans on a Noctua heatsink instead of that ugly brown fan that comes with it, hopefully without performance issues.

For my next build I'm planning to get an i7 8700K and overclock it beyond 4.5Ghz. I'm going for air cooling as I wish to avoid the nonsense and hazard of water coolers. Noctua NH-U9S is going to be my choice. Problem is, that thing is hideous. My next PC is going to be all RGB inside a CM Stryker case, which means a white+black+RGB color scheme. So as you can imagine the Noctua fan would ruin that look.

I suspect the Corsair HD120 fans are meant to be for cases only, but I could be wrong. Any help would be appreciated, including a recommendation for a good-looking CPU cooler fan. I have searched for those but found nothing so far.
