Push pull is a configuration where a fan on one side of the radiator pushes the air through and a fan on the other side pulls the air out. It's useless if you have good fans and/or a thin radiator. I used to run it for redundancy, but the redundant fan broke... lol

Ah I see...would you recommend it if I'm running an Antec 620? I'll likely be running it as exhaust out the back of the case (I have no room at the front).

I currently have a Cooler Master V6GT CPU cooler which is friggen huge and in the way so I might have to get a second Antect 620 to cool my CPU as well. How do you think that would do me?

That would be fine

If your motherboard does not have any tall heat sinks, it should be fine; some sites said that large heat sinks could block the cooler on the 300r. I'm not sure that it would really matter on a rad that thin, though.

What would be the best thermal tape to use with heatsinks on VRAM?

This is the mobo I'm running: Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 Intel Z68 LGA1155 MB

If the heatsink of the motherboard is shorter than the I/O plate, then it will fit. I can't really tell from the picture, but it looks like it would fit.

Well, there's only one way to find out lol.

I've got my Antec 620 + AS5 thermal paste ordered, as well as a gelid solutions adapter (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812718002) so I can use the stock gpu cooler profiles with a 92mm fan.

Will order the cooler + fan bracket from dwood in the next few days.

This will be going on my EVGA 560 Ti DS SC (it has 2 fans). I've never had it apart, but I'm guessing I'll need to remove the heat plate already on there so my 92mm fan will blow right onto the vram.

You want some kind of heat sink on top of the VRAM and the VRMs; most importantly the VRMs. You can get some aftermarket copper heatsinks and put them on with thermal tape. look for the enzotech low profile ramsinks. I'm not sure about VRM heatsinks; the 560 ti might not need them.

Also, I think you need a copper shim to mount the fan bracket on that card.

Do you happen to know which thermal tape is the best?

Are you sure about that? I was talking to Dwood and he said I don't :S
