It is only one review so far. I want to see a few more to cover variances so we can get a broader picture of how well on average do they fair against one another.

Well there's a lot of surface area to talk about here.

a 140mm radiator has 36% more surface area than a 120.
a 240mm radiator has 100% more surface area than a 120.
a 280mm radiator has 172% more surface area than a 120.

a 280mm radiator has 36% more surface area than a 240.

Now this isn't entirely accurate, though, because you can change fin density and the pipe runs and all kinds of stuff inside the radiator to make it perform differently.

There are challenges, though. High static pressure 140mm fans are harder to find, and fitting a 140mm isn't as easy as having a rear 140mm fan mount. The 140mm radiators have tanks and end caps, just like 120s do. the difference is that the 140mm fan mounts in the rear of cases are usually right up against the top PCI-E slot on bottom, and the I/O shield area on the sides. So a lot of 140mm single rads don't fit in the rear of a case, but have to be installed up top.

is there enough space to install the msata attachment and the radiator for the h80i in it's original orientation (the back of the case) ? I did not attempt to install the attachment because i was nervous that it might break the card. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

OR

could i top mount the rad and would that cause flow problems or interfere with the top of the board?
