Basic things to remember under normal condition. It can vary from computer to computer.

1. You want more intakes than exhaust. I will create a positive pressure inside the case if done correctly.

2. Intakes are normally front and bottom.

3. Exhaust are back and top.

To answer your question I would choose 2-120mm for the front over 1-140.

With that case can you remove the drive bays if you don't use them. That would help a lot. The are sitting right in the way of the front fans air flow.

That is quite a nice case for the cost.
