any of these four would last your build a very long time, all modular and able to handle pretty much anything

I would get the Xigmatek because it has lifetime limited warranty compared to the other two that you picked have 5 year,
get the neopower if you really like the led.

Does the Xigmatek have an 8 pin +12V CPU connector? It doesn't show one in the pics, just a 4 pin.

Also, the neopower has a lower life expectancy compared to the others but idk if it would make much of a difference.
Will the neopower be hotter because of the 120mm fan compared to the 140mm on the others?

yes it does, but larger fans have larger cfm capability with less noise, so its your best bet
