Choosing an air cooled RTX 2080 Ti for fan modding

Hello everyone. I am in a need of advice/assistance. Thank you very much in advance.

I am planning to buy an air cooled card and remove the shroud/fans to replace them with either two NF-A12x25s or two Silent Wings 3 140mm. Whichever ones fit, with the latter being preferable.

My potential candidates are Lightning Z and FTW3 Ultra. Maybe Gaming X Trio if it has the same sized heatsink as Lightning Z (with this one I would have to flash the bios, which I would like to avoid because of the risk of voiding the warranty). I would consider a HOF if they were available (don't know whether that shroud/display can be removed easily).

The goal here is to achieve the best noise/performance cooling ratio while having one of the potentially highest OCing air cooled cards. The price is not a consideration here. As I have understood while reading this awesome thread MSI has a larger heatsink than FTW3. Is that accurate? Also its height might allow fitting two 140mm fans instead of two 120mm. Can anyone verify? These factors would make it a number one choice for me. That is unless there is no way to do the mod without voiding the warranty on a MSI card. That is important for me. Can it be done? Otherwise, an FTW3 is the only choice.
