I haven't looked for any mod for the case yet, but I'm thinking that I should probably put 3 140mm to also push more air.
The case is easy to mod at least, so adding an extra 140mm shouldn't be too hard, and yeah, I think the bequiet are a good choice because the ones from Phantek are kind of noisy and don't really ramp very well.

I can't say for sure but yesterday I've done a lot of testing with more cooling getting in my case and I could see the PCH not going over 61°C with FAH running for 10 hours on both GPU and CPU (used 12 cores only as using 15 gives me weird behaviour with work not being distributed to my computer... FAH doesn't like high even numbers of CPU
Also on IDLE the PCH went down to 54°C which is already lower than what I was seeing previously.
My VRM on the other side only got up to 55°C at the end of the load, and after stopping it, it went down to 42°C pretty quickly.
For sure it proves my cooling wasn't enough!
But at the same time, do I want a system with fan blowing at max all the time? no I don't.
I'll get a bequiet fan and I'll put that in the case and see if more air flow as lower speed allow good enough temps (say max 62°C on PCH and idle at 52°C)
Also if you check this post it seems that some other MB also suffer from high PCH temps: https://community.amd.com/thread/214508

I think PCH is for the chipset temperature monitoring, which is the block below the RAM with the glowing ROG logo on it (glowing if you've enabled RGB
