I am really not super worried about noise here but the gigabyte is one of the quietest around. This card was specifically choosen due to the 2 dual link DVI so we can OC both of the monitors (i know the secondary doesnt need to be) but when you mouse from 96-120hz to 60 it is very noticeable
You may also want to consider the 21:9 and/or 120-160 hz offers for 1080, 1440 and 4K monitors including ULMB
I would love to move into the 4K res but we want to stick with 2 monitors and keep the budget for the entire build around 2-2.5k
Concerning the fans, wait before ordering anything, first test out the noise of the 200mm (may likely be unbearable if the model is the same as the one is my enthoo pro), then see what you can do, the Noctua fans are good but expensive, IMO there are better options out there, please read my review of the TY-147, the listed fans tested in the review link also include the Noctuas. You can also compare these values with the ones in the 140mm fans roundups on SPCR.
I think that is a great point and i was planning on seeing how loud and the temps before we considered more fans
edit: i knew you were ordering Qnix but i thought these were non-ocable versions, are you sure you will attein 120hz ?
I personally own a Qnix 2710 and have my OC at 120hz

I have had my K70 blue steel with reds since Oct 2014 and it has been amazing ever since.

The 200mm fan in the front is terrible.
I think i like this idea alot I bring the 200 to top and swap the 140 top to front and buy one more 140
And guys guys guys, yes the noct fans are ugly
but everyone has their own opinion on what is the best. Lets focus on other parts other than fans please
