Default Performance comparison 240 to 360mm rad

I've just updated my build to house a 9900k, and currently I'm using a 4 years old H100i (240 aio) with 2 120SP fans to keep it cool. Performance wise, this setup is doing a good job, especially because I got a golden silicon and I can keep all cores @5.1, cache @4.6 @1.31V.

Now to the question;

I bought a couple months ago a really nice case (Phanteks Evolv X), and I want to have it filled with 6 or 7 LL120 Fans. The only way I can think of to keep a similar cooling performance using LL fans instead would be to increase the rad size for better passive cooling (H150i Pro would come in here). I wonder if anyone would be able to tell me how much of a difference I can expect in temperatures, be it for better or worse.

Just to make it crystal clear:
Now: H100i 2x SP120
After: H150i Pro 3x LL120.

If temps were to change drastically even by changing rad size, I'd consider using 6-7 HD120 instead (3 on the rad). ML fans are 100% out of question for not looking good in my opinion.

Thank you.
