What's the best fan solution for best case airflow exists on the market today, among 120 and 140mm fans?
Pure perfomance or perfomance/price, but price isn't the most concern here atm.

Is noise a consern? I ask because for most of us it is eqully important as airflow is.

Ofc. I must say, it's even #1 concern, I won't hesitate sacrificing some airflow for silence.
So basically, the best options for airflow under 800/1000/1200rpm, right?

Thermalbench is down at the moment, or I would post up data. The be quiet! Silent Wings 3 are pretty much the undisputed leader in airflow to noise in 120 and 140mm, and have a really smooth sound signature.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Best in my book are be quiet! Silent Wings 3 140mm PWM high speed with same in 120mm 2nd best, but only because 140mm fans tend to flow more air at same noise level by a 2:3 ratio. It takes 3x 120mm fans to equal the same airflow as 2x 140mm fans making less noise.

Yeah, I agree about 140mm - thankfully, my case supports 140mm all over, so I think 140mm is a way to go.

So, be quiet! Silent Wings 3 it is then. They are really good at low RPM - misunderstood that part about "PWM high speed"?

P.S. BTW, at the moment I'm using eLoops as radiator fans + one Noctua A14 chromax, and I must admit, overall, six 120mm NoiseBlockers are way quieter than one 140mm noctua. That might be placement issue, but this made me think that I should ask for options first before blindly buying noctua once again :/

Indeed, even if Silent Wings 3 have same DBa sound pressure level it's a much more pleasant sound so we don't notice it as much.

The "PWM high speed" is PWM control with maximum speed of 1600rpm instead of maximum speed of only 1000rpm. While probably 99% of the time 1000rpm is as fast as you will run them, there might be a few occasions when the extra speed will be nice to have .. like super hot days when case filters are dirty.

Regarding be quiet! Silent Wings 3 140mm PWM High Speed fans - I have two of them installed as intake and compared to my previous Noctua NF P14s Redux-1200 PWM they have superior characteristics but they also emit this weird high-pitched grinding noise. It sounds like something in between a tiny stream of running water and crickets chirping at night. It's not loud and I usually don't notice it but with Noctua Redux fans I only heard the aerodynamic noise. So a tiny bit of buyer's remorse here.
