3x 120mm fans or 2x 140mm fans?
Feb 12, 2014, 5:10 PM
My case has the option to have 3 120's up front for intake or 2 140's. Which is the better choice? I have a 280mm rad on top as exhaust and a 140mm in the back for exhaust as well

I always go with 140's personally due to the fact I like quiet.
Personal preference really.
3X120 would probably be a little louder.

I would go with the 140mm fans as well. I'm a fan of going with the largest size fans your case supports since they spin slower, move more air, and are quieter.
