well my resoning was that the 120mm fans cost 3 times as much at least

and the hole saw for the 120's was twice the cost 45 bucks total compared to 28 for the 80mm also the drill we used probably wouldnt have been able to handle a 120mm one. the drill press i had available was two small to be dealing with side panels so i had to use a corded hand held drill

Looks cool. What are you going to hook so many fans up to though?
