LED Strip or LED Case fans for NZXT S340?

So I recently got my black/blue NZXT S340. Now I want to light up the inside of the case. I'm debating between getting some blue or white led strips, or getting some LED case fans and mounting 2 in the front (intake) and 1 in the rear, exhaust.

I'm looking at some Corsair high air flow fans, so I'd get 2 x 140 from the front intake and 1 x 120 for the rear.

Currently I have some Rosewill fans mounted in the front so the fans would be an upgrade.

So, thoughts?

I would personally go the case fan LED route with 1 120mm in the back and 1 140mm on top. I like LED case fans better because they provide enough lighting on the inside without saturating the color scheme in my opinion. LED strips can do this too but only when positioned the right way. Another option would be doing a mixture of both. Again, this is only my opinion.

I'm leaning towards the fans right now. the 140's in front would get me more air flow as a bonus.

Thermaltake also has some sexy led fans:

Yes, those are cool. I just wished they came in version for high air flow.

I have some cheap led strips in my PC, the same as here. For the price it's pretty good, the sticky isn't that great though. Ama!
