2x 120mm or 1x 140mm fan for my case?

Hello.
I'm stuck between choosing 2x 120mm fan or 1x 140mm fan for the front of my case
My case is an corsair carbide 100r and i want to make the custom airflow, here's a picture:

  1. Best answer
    get either a Phanteks PH-F140XP/SP or a Noctua NF-A14 PWM/FLX
    the Phanteks looks better, the Noctua comes with more accessories (which you prb won't need anyway)

    generally 140mm > 120mm as they can spin slower while moving the same amount of air which makes them quieter

    if you want to spend as little as possible, Cougar fans are surprisingly good!
  2. I would use 2x120mm.
  3. the case can take 2x140 in the front in case you didn't know OP

    Rly? i was thinking it only could take one lmao
    So i will buy an 140mm now and another one if one isn't good enough
    Anyway thanks for helping and sorry for my english
  5. Just get 1 - 140mm for the upper slot in the front of the case , the lower slot is severely restricted by the HDD cage in terms of Airflow.

    is your HDD running hot? because it doesn't really matter if it's at 38°C or at 33°C

    50 degrees most of the time
  9. Won't really help HDD temps , maybe a degree or 2.
