BEST ANSWER:

Actually pretty much, a 280 one can counter a 360 one.

240 cooling area: 240*120=28,800cm²

280 cooling area: 280*140=39,200cm²

360 cooling area: 360*120=43,200cm²

28,800/39,200≈73%

39,200/43,200≈91%

And you use only 2 fans rather than 3, cheaper, quieter.

So you should always go with 140 fans if you can.
