I'm going to buy this radiator and have a few questions.
Is Performance-pcs.com still a good company to deal with? How about aqua-tuning.com? I've used both in the past, but it's been a while.
Can you recommend good fans for it? Sound isn't an issue as the radiator will be in the encapsulated crawl space under the house.
Is there a 9 fan controller available that can be run from the Asus Q-fan BIOS profile?

Yes Performance PCs is still a good company. Their product prices and shipping are generally higher than other retailers but they are reliable. I've been using Titanrig.com and Modmymods.com lately with good results. A little less selection but much better prices. I can't speak to aqua-tuning.com.

For fans I've been using the Arctic P12/14. Really good prices with almost no noise. Amazon link

I can 2nd the Arctic P12 PMW/PST fan recommendation. They move a good amount of air through my older Swiftech MCR360 rad.

Just an FYI, that radiator takes 200mm fans. So 120/140 won't work (unless there's some sort of adapter thing).

The problem with 200mm fans is that there isn't much of a selection out there... and especially designed for radiators. I'd look for high pressure and CFM 200mm for best results (since noise isn't a concern).

I don't know of a fan controller that would also be controlled by the BIOS... seems......counterintuitive as I understand it.

Ah good catch, I didn't even see that. Unless you are using a 200mm rad for a particular fit I would go down to a radiator that uses 120/140 fans. Better choice of fans for sure.
