h100i installation question

I have a question about installing 140mm fans on the h100i. I have the h100i mounted to the front panel of my Corsair 450D and the case allows for 140mm fans in the front. Would replacing the 140mm fans (Static pressure) with 120mm static pressure fans cool better? I want to keep the larger fans in the front because the case allows for it but I'm wondering if they don't cool as effectively because they are not the same size as the radiator.

Generally speaking, air, like water takes the path of least resistance, therefore if there is a gap at the side of the rad the air will flow across the rad and around the side, rather than through it. With a 120mm fan fitted it should be sealed to the rad and therefore the pressure will be equal and the air will be forced through the rad.
