    Oh, you definitely need it.

    That glass vertical mobo case makes me happy, I can't afford it but oh well.

    Can somebody explain the trend for fans running sideways through the front of the case. Is the idea to provide radiators with airflow that doesn't vent into the main chamber? Does it actually do anything beyond looking like a dog's dinner?

    If you mean this... it's an micro-ATX case, with the PSU is in the front behind the radiator.

    That one makes more sense then, but it's still a design choice I'm seeing in lot's of other (not Silverstone) cases where it seems to be nonsense to me.

    More often than not it'll be hardware layout - well; that's my guess.

    Potentially you could fit a wider radiator than your actual case width, but I'm not sure if any designs actually take advantage of that.

    I really want the Alta S1, but at the same time I don't because it'll mean I have to completely re-arrange my office space... plus I keep meaning to downsize and that definitely isn't a downsize.

    Would be hard to take advantage of since radiator manufacturers are all about length and thickness, but not width.

    120x3 and 140x2 are pretty close in terms of actual fin area, but the 140x2 will be shorter and use quieter fans. It will however be wider, so would need an overall wider case if mounted in the normal orientation. Even moreso with 180mm rads.
