And yeah my rig is pretty silent right now. Gotta get a fan controller now, Not sure which one though. I havent done any research I need something that has pwm control, rpm display, and temp display

That's the 1850 rpm version right?
http://www.scythe-eu.com/en/products/fans/gentle-typhoon-120-mm.html

It says 57,7 CFM with 28dB, Cougars are 60,4 CFM with only 17,7 dB. Am i missing something or are Cougars really that much better?
Apart from the availability issues in the US I've heard of, be quiet! Silent Wings seems reasonable: 50,5 CFM and 15,7 dB. So a little weaker and quieter.

All of those were the 120mm fan versions

Lots of fan manufacturers exaggerate their fans' CFM and remove a few db from the noise levels.
Cougar and Cooler Master are known to outright lie about their fans performance, so take any specs with a grain of salt.

For those of you with 240mm radiator based coolers, what length is left for the video card?

I'm considering this case to house my Sapphire 290X Tri-X (305 mm long) crossfire setup with an Enermax Liqtech 240.

140mm or 120mm?

If you're looking for 140mm, I have Rosewill Hyperborea 140mm in the front and they are great. 89 cfm, <22 dB and 2.76 mmh2o. And only for 12 bucks.
