120mm is better because it's bigger. Because of that, it can push more air at slower speeds. It's quieter also since it doesn't have to move as fast.

You can use everest, cpucool, speedfan, et cetera. As for the fans, MM is a metric measurment, thus it is the size of the fan. The 120mm is slow, but more efficent than an 80mm.
