You might consider doing a 420 to save a bit on length and instead utilize some width, while actually gaining slightly more cooling capacity than a 480. By far one of the absolute best fans on the market is a 140mm fan, the Phanteks PH-140SP. The rad itself and the one less fan will save you some cash (usually 420's are cheaper than 480's). You shouldn't run into fitment issues with that and you'd get the performance of the 480 for only 60mm extra length over the 360.
yea not really esp against gts, very very very few 140s can match the rad output of a 120, ( currently ) they just have not been developed yet for some reason. i actually only have seen one fan that is 140 that i would even think of using on a rad

Is PWM better? I dunno for sure. Most likely will just do the Aquaero 6 XT and a 20 GT AP-15s.

you usually get more range though from pwm
iirc you can mod them to pwm by adding a wire on the pcb the spot to solder is already there.

And I see that while they are 140mm fans that they have 120mm mounts. So how do you use them on 140mm rads exactly? Is there an adapter included or one that people are buying?

As I own 3 ROG boards right now, I will tell you that only the CPU FAN/CPU OPT headers are true PWM headers on them, all the other headers, even though they are 4-pin headers are voltage controlled. Just a heads up.
this is 100% true

I got it for only $350 with all the accessories included. Best deal ever! I wasn't even in the market for a new case, but I couldn't say no to a TH10 with extended top for only $350. The guy said he just wasn't into water cooling anymore. Time to get rid of my Cosmos 2 and my smaller rads. First on the list of things to buy are a pedestal and XXL side window. Super excited to get started, but might have to wait until spring to do the full switch and upgrade. Stupid expensive addition on the house!

awesome man let us know if oyu have any qs !

So I just experienced Caselabs modularity awesomeness for the first time assembling a few parts to test this motherboard and the remount of my GPU block. I wanted the front radiator to have the ports on the bottom, but it was a little tight with it all the way at the bottom of the flex bays. So I thought maybe I could move it up a peg or two? Sure enough, worked like a champ and I had all these extra flex bay plates to fill in the gap!! So badass!

To get an idea of how much space components take up, and more importantly to test the motherboard, I threw some parts in just for fun. This is in no shape or form my projected build...

I think the only GTs that have the PWM port to solder a wire to are the ones that are 3K RPM (AP-30) and up aka the black ones.

I'm thinking you're talking about the ones that come on Phanteks air coolers, but I'm talking about the Phanteks PH-140SP which is a regular 140mm fan that was introduced recently with the Enthoo Primo case (amazing full tower case that I did a build in but recently switched to a Mercury S5 because I wanted a smaller form factor). You can check out SilentPCReviews fan reviews. Their most recent one was with 140mm fans so no direct comparison to the AP-15 but it was the clear winner in every category. They also said that if they had to start from scratch, the PH-140 would be their new reference fans that all others were compared to, and I believe the Gentle Typhoons are their actual reference fan, so that says quite a bit. Their 120mm version should be released any time now, so it should be interesting to see how it compares to other fans. I have a bunch of the PH-140's and am using 4 in my Caselabs build as well as 4 Noiseblocker eLoops for the 240 rad, and the Phanteks fans are pretty comparable in noise. There are quite a few good options for 120's but the PH-140's are pretty much the best 140's that I know of giving you an option in 140's that's very well made and compares favorably to the very best 120's.
