Doing a system rebuild in a couple weeks with a bunch of new parts, and one thing I've been wondering is if I'll notice any extra cooling wise that might actually help me squeeze as much as I can out of my cpu. I have Z73 waiting to be installed with some Lian Li Sl120's and have tons of extra fans so thinking why not. Use them on the bottom side, and the 3 included Nzxt fans on the topside of the rad.

This will be in an O11 XL and running 3 bottom/3 rear intake, and 6 top/1 back exhaust. Kinda looking for some input on if any extra noise cancels out any gains in headroom?
