I'd wait until you're ready to order to plan, lots of new stuff around the corner for Intel/AMD.

Also, I'd look at PWM controlled fans, but not from Corsair as theirs have issues with PWM splitters.

ya i no new stuff around the corner but i like to start my new build early research and plan accordingly

and once i see the new kaby lake and zen benchs then i will alter my build to that but if i dont see much of a improvment in games then i will keep what i have or alter it

well i usely just plug what fans i can in to the board and plug the rest of them in to the a mulex fan cable from the psu and run them from there b/c i dont mind the fan noise i got use to it from over the years of having 9 fans running full speed all the time in my thor v2

Little point to a build now outside of case, ram, psu, for a system at least 3 months away with all the new stuff coming out. Everything is going to change board and cpu wise and you have the rest of the parts already.

What you have built for now is fine for now (see atm's comments re: fans)... :)

I bought some Corsair AF120s a while back and really disliked them. Too loud and I was getting some like whine or something in the vertical orientation. There are fans that are either cheaper/quieter with comparable CFM. Check out some of fan comparisons/benchmarks.

I haven't had any problems with Corsair fans, but they tend to sound like a MiG-25 spooling up at higher RPMs.
tho since im going to 140mm fans they wont sound that bad will they lol

but hey at least you no the air flow in the case is optimal lol

- - - Updated - - -

I would go with a EVGA SC GTX 1070 Black Edition.

i entered a giveaway for a 1080 :p from jaystwocents

I have 6 of the Corsair SP 140mm fans and 3 AF 140mm fans, all seem to do fine on the fan controller. The are whisper quite on lower settings, but do get a little noisy all the way up. Even at 50%, I can't hear them over the ambient noise of my house though.
I also didn't see a cpu cooler in the build. Using an existing one, or getting a new one?

Why go with the black edition over the normal SC or an FTW?

Are they voltage or PWM controlled though?

there 3 pin 12v fans from what they say on newegg

The reason I asked is because there are 3-pin and 4-pin versions of the SP and AF series.

Even though you're accustomed to loud, consider going with 4-pin PWM fans and controlling them via a splitter.
You'll be shocked how nice it is to not hear fans ramped up unless they need to be :)

to be honest i want them to run at full speed from the start up of the system b/c i wont have to worry about temps at all i can just get in there and play :p

You won't have to worry about temps if they're set up like I'm talking about...
Fan speed is set up to be a function of temperature when using a PWM splitter on a PWM motherboard fan header.

Hmm...off hand I can't remember now. I'll check when I get home. I thought they were PWM, but now you have me thinking they might not be...
They are the 'older' design fans, not the new ones with the color rings.
