If I were to pick an air cooler, what would you recommend? Also do you recon this build needs a fan controller?
Probably this.

Also on this system you have:
  • 1 x CPU fan header
  • 2 x system fan headers
So already you will have enough headers for your AIO and CPU cooler fans, but if you plan to connect more than 3 fans that each require their own fan header on the board then yes, you will need a fan controller/hub.

I was thinking on buying 2 additional fans to place at the bottom of the case to help the gpu intake more fresh air, then have the two on top to exhaust the warm air, so that brings to 4 already plus the aio fans, if they each connect individually , would be 6 so definitely would need a controller.
As for the air cooler, I’ve always been skeptical of them but maybe for this build it wouldn’t be such a bad idea
