Hello there,

I'm interested in buying 3 x case fans for additional good airflow.

I am looking between Cooler Master MF120 Halo 3 in 1 and SickleFlow 120mm 3 in 1 models.

Airflow specs of those two are:
MF 120 Halo: 47.2 CFM +/- 10%
SickleFlow 120: 62 CFM + /- 10%

MF120 seems to have good rgb features.

Does it mean SickleFlow ones have better airflow than MF120 Halo?
Is there a noticeable difference between 47.2 and 62 CFM? Can SickleFlow fans keep system few degrees cooler than MF120 Halo?

Doesn't mean anything - yet.
Unless you can find someone that has reviewed these 2 fans side by side, you won't get a clear-cut answer without buying both and testing side by side yourself.
Your ears ultimately determine how the fans will perform.
The sound level(dBA) isn't enough.
Some fans have humms, whirrs, buzzes, etc, at a certain rpm range, that may or may not be annoying. Those are measured in hertz(hz), and effects vary between individuals.
CFM, static pressure, and sound level don't scale linearly either, so running a fan at 60% speed doesn't mean those specs are at 60%.
