    Default 1x 200mm or 2x 140mm?

    I recently got an Antec DF-85 which is just a modified 1200 (I think for the better) but I was reading reviews on Newegg that said that Antec should've stuck with the 200mm fan on top instead of the two 140mm fans. Which is truly better?

    I'd say #2 140s as gives you a little extra push or draw area.

    Also if one goes out still have another.
    Cheaper to replace.
    No biggie though, either way.

    I don't think one is better than the other... Larger fan will probably push the same amount of air as 2 smaller and do it at a slower RPM thus meaning quieter. But you can also get decent volume 140 fans that will not be overly loud either.

    Why not take the top plastic cover off and see what different configuration wholes are drilled into the steel case? Some manufactuers have it configured for certain fans but also have mounting wholes for different configurations pre drilled into the case. You may be surprised to find wholes for 200mm. 140mm and 120mm.

    This is really good advice. Look to see what the case will accommodate if you plan to mess with the configuration a little.
    If it were me, I would use it for a while to see if it is to loud or running too hot. If so, then fix it,.....if not, then don't.
    Chances are that it's fine the way it is.

    I wasn't going to replace them (they're actually pretty quiet) but I was just wondering which would have been better. My case has no plastic top cover and it has no other mounts.
