In terms of cooling power, it is pretty irrelevant and both the 280mm and 360mm offer more cooling than you need. The throughput differences between 3x120mm and 2x140mm are largely inconsequential unless you intend to run the absolute lowest possible fan speed without regard to temperature or insist on the maximum possible, even if it does not aid CPU cooling any further.

It is the case itself that should tilt the decision one way or another. Most cases have a slightly better set-up for 120 or 140mm moounts, depending on the frame and rails. Your right, you never see top mounted radiators with that case because it is similar to a lot of recent releases with very little top headroom. That brings you back to the front rail. To me the case screams out for 3x120, with both the rail mounting design and the peak through front window. It's not a super wide case and those 140mm may block some grommets. Perhaps anything further is best answered by a Spec Omega owner. There is only so much I can see in the pictures.
