My view is it's better to have high rpm's and not need them than need them and not have them.

I always do push/ pull fans on rads the fans do need to be matched.
Thanks, not sure if it will help at this point but I'll link anyway.

If I go with a 280 or 420 rad (420 would require a different case than I'm considering) my understanding is Alphacool is using re-branded versions of this
https://www.bequiet.com/en/casefans/448
The 360's would use these https://www.bequiet.com/en/casefans/449

this would be one of the kits I was looking at (but through a US re-seller) https://www.alphacool.com/shop/new-p...te-kit?c=22312

However I have to admit I'm also considering this as a temporary thing for a while until I had money for a fully custom build picking my own parts etc. It's an open loop AIO that can also link up with a GPU version if desired which then gives two pump system in case one fails https://www.alphacool.com/shop/sets-...-black?c=21228 I picked the 240 over the 280 because I could move it to my old case for a second system down the road.

This is the case I was planning to get

I believe this is the 200mm fans that come stock on it http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/...an-mf200r-rgb/

I'm also debating this case however which can fit a 420 in front and a 360 up top
