EDIT: Thank you for your answer
How loud can.you tolerate your fans?
You could cool all that on a single 240 with delta fans, but you'd go insane in 5 minutes
I'll give you 3 goal for your build. Out of those 3 you can only have 2. Your pick:
Now 3 big cards and a CPU could be cooled by a 360 and 120 rads.
But I recommend 3000 rpm really good fans. The 3000 rpm Gentle Typhoon fans would do just fine. Get the thickest rads you can fit, allowing room for push/pull (fans on both sides).
So you can get complete silence sub 1000 rpm when idle/surfing/spread sheeting.
But when under load, you'll need to crank them up. And 8 fans at 3000 rpm won't be silent for sure.
And with that much hardware, a 1200W PSU won't be enough if you want to do even a mild OC. Everything at stock is fine, but not much OC on a 1200 W PSU.
So you might want to look into th Enermax 1350W PSU.
Enermax is also one of the top brands along with Corsair.
