Which Predator would you advise for FX-9590? Predator 280 or 360?

I have a 9590 and Asus CFZ lying around and want to build a new system. I've ordered the Corsair Carbide Air 740 (ETA October 6th) but I'm not sure whether I should go for Predator 280 (top) or 360 in the front.

Both should be fine. The 280 has a different pump, bu not sure if it's better/worse.
I think you should decide it based on the preferred location in your case.

Does anyone know if it's better to run the pump in PWM mode or should it be at a constant RPM? Just from my experience with other "AIO" units, the manual suggested it to be run at a constant RPM.

You should run it with PWM or constant 12V. A fan curve with ramping up fans is not the best way for the pump, yes.
Do you have a 2nd PWM port? Like CPU_FAN2 or CPU_OPT...

I have CPU_FAN, CPU_OPT, ASST_FAN, and W_PUMP slots on top near the CPU socket. Which should I connect the pump to and which should I connect the Predator fan hub to?

Won't PWM on the pump ramp it up any way? Or do you mean just put a flat curve for for the pump? Like 40% across the board?

CPU_OPT sounds good. Make sure that you can controll them separately (BIOS or fan software of your mainboard or SpeedFan).

So put the fan hub on the CPU_FAN and the pump on CPU_OPT? Would it be fine to run the pump at something like 40% across the board?
