Three NF-A12X25 are capable of 180 CFM at max, while the two NF-A14 are capable of 164 CFM at max, a very negligible difference. So, really, the question you are asking here is "why are three 2000 rpm 120 mm fans louder than two 1500 rpm 140mm fans, when all of the fans in question have an almost identical dBA output?". That is a far simpler perspective than any math, and should have an obvious answer.

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