MAIN POINT Should I get the prime a z270 or mark 1 z270 board with this build? Main point This will be used for heavy oc and gaming at 1440p and high fps games would be Minecraft Forza horizon 3 just cause 3 GTA v red dead 2 eventually and various other AAA titles. Any thoughts or suggestions? I know the fans might be expensive and loud but that's what a fan controller is for and these fans have great reviews. The 240gb SSD I already have it's got win 10 and some other stuff from my old computer.

You can't do RAID 10 with 2 disks. Minimum is 4, as its a raid 0 mirrored.

As well, unless you're planning on changing the fans on your radiators, those fans are intended for small spaces or for radiators.

There's not a lot known as to the overclock ability of those two boards.

I was gonna change the rad fans and put them as case fans somewhere as a bit of extra airflow

Seeing the majority of your heat will hopefully be dumped to the outside of the case, you might be able to get away with it. However, they aren't as efficient as High Airflow Fans.

Honestly, if you are considering the ASUS TUF Mark1, why not just go with the Mark II as it has 10 or so case fan headers and let the MB control the fan speeds based on need.

Don't forget a 40mm fan to mount IN the MB if you do. Noctua does make one. I used it in a TUF Gryhpon MB.

FWIW, Im using the IPS 165 Hz version of that monitor and waiting on the 1080ti my self.

I thought you could raid 10 on 2 drives. I'll probably just go with a 1tb red then

While you technically can, but you would have to be using Linux's md driver. You certainly can't do it under Windows. Also, why buy some useless "RAID" drives? Get two normal WD Blues and you'l be fine and save $80 in the bargain.

Why can't they be used as intake fans? They move more air than any other fan on the market

I realized that but 1 1080 can't run max setting 60+ fps 4k on most games

So go 1440p and get 100+ max setting fps
