This is my question as well - in conjunction with running all 140s minus the two 120s that will be on my H70 Hydro.
I'm not looking to make my rig an icebox, mind you. I would like it to be quieter and if that means my overall temps go up 1 to 5 degrees so be it. The problem is that there is too many choices out there and am curious to know what everyones' temps are like.
A couple reasons:
1. 3 120's are a higher airflow than 140's, especially in static pressure fans.
2. There is a wider selection of 120's.
3. 120's can move the same or more air while being more silent.
4. Helps maintain positive pressure if you're using more than a single 140 for exhaust, which prevents dust buildup.
Those are my reasons...anyways.
If you go the bgears route they have really high static pressure...I believe the highest advertised. They aren't terribly silent, though nothing next to the sp120's. They just aren't visually appealing unless you drop the extra for the led fans.
