So if put the RX480 on top of haf 932 outside the case then put 3x 500rpm gently typhoons inside the case blowing air on to the readiator it should be quiet no?

Why would you want to use it that way ? RX480 with 3 fans is hardly any better than RX360 with 3 fans.

considering it has more space and metal it should cool better at same slow rpm fans?

Just like a 800gram aircooler is better compared to a 250gram cooler.

Not really, it's pretty much same as having a lot of water in loop, it just takes a bit longer for water to warm up.

Air moving past your radiator fins & tubes is what will cool the water in your loop, not because you have more volume of water moving through metal. It would be a waste to replace an RX360 with an RX480 with the same three fans, if you buy an RX480 run four fans and if you buy an RX360 run three fans!
