I don't know of, or have seen 140s with green LEDs, but Aerocool has 140s with blue and white LEDs.

what you can do if you want a 140mm fan with leds is maybe buy a 140mm fan that comes with leds, and another fan with green leds, and just replace them. i would only do this if you were good at soldering though.
