I am pretty interested in the Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme from CrazyPC.com, but what fan should i strap on it?
There is always room.

As for fans, any Scythe high CFM fans would be fine. I also love my Zalman ZM-F3 - Quet, Cheap and pushes a nice amount of air.

I think i'll get the A2018 Smart Fan, since it comes with the controller, so i won't have to hook it up to my Kama-Meter. I might as well go all-out, since i won't be upgrading probably ever again, and when i do, a new motherboard, CPU, and cooler will come with it. (new socket probably)

Same. If you have a fan controller, you can go with something just as noisy but with twice the cfm.

Ok, so what else is really fast that i could hook up to my fan controller? And does this mean i would just bypass the CPU_FAN header on the motherboard and hook it directly to my controller?

Or this (<3 <3) -

Yes just bypass cpu fan header....Make sure you change the cpu fan fail alarm . If you go for the zalman that has a resistor tocut speed in half.
