My System Specs

Default 120mm vs 140mm

Hi guys, new here, anyways i was arguing with someone over the sizes of fans 120mm vs 140mm's.

My argument was that 140MM is starting to become the new norm because they have the ability to push more air when needed and are quieter when doing so.

While he argues that 120MM are just made better and can push more air because 120MM = optimum size for fans.

Can I get some opinions or facts on whats better? I know through knowledge, assembly & reviews that 140MM are indeed better if given the same series of fans, same RPM, same construction and same bearings.
