As mentioned taking specs lightly but for the sake of reference, the 240's cool 650W and the 280 would work for 700w. I'm not speaking of 360's as they were out of stock for now(GTS line).

What exactly will work? I understand we're cooling some of the hottest pieces of hardware but i really dont think i need 60mm thick cores(best of the best names out there) to cool this CPU or GPUs, there're AIO's cooling these already(not great but keeping sub 90c). Just trying to weigh my options here as it seems the deeper you get the deeper its implied you need to get lol. I knowits all based on goals as it was mentioned. So 70's for temp while pushing the hardware hard would be my goal, right off the top of my head. GPU isn't overclocked so only cpu.
The GTS line shows absolutely no benefit from push/pull, only an increase in noise - https://www.xtremerigs.net/2015/02/1...-round-2015/5/

If you can fit the 280mm and get appropriate fans, you will see an increase in performance over the 240mm as you will have a 36% increase in surface area.

That really is the preferable thing to do under the circumstances if you can fit it in your budget.

So the 360's are better than same series/line 280's, for quieter performance? Given there isn't much of a drop in heat reducing capacity.

There will be very little performance difference. The pair of 280mm will likely be a little quieter, as you will be using four rather than six fans. But, you had stated that you have 120mm fans on hand, so the ~$60-80 you would be spending on 140mm fans could be used toward a case more suited for your needs.

I had my eye set on some 120 fans but not really a big deal to change. They just looked good on paper with low noise, high SP and decent price. They're cooler master blade master 120. i'm trying to get a good set of 140mm high static pressure fans with decent under 30db ratings but seems hard unless paying more than $25 per fan.

Im sure my search criteria is bit messed up. I seems to think that only 3.0 or above for static pressure is good but these usually mean high rpms which is also a synonym for high noise. Noctua's are great but the one's im looking at are running $30 a fan lol.

Blademasters are horrible sounding fans, and don't perform anywhere near what the specs would indicate.
