Not really what i asked.....

Ill just push/pull them and see how it goes

push+pull is the best for performance.

push for lower fpi rads like yours.
pull for higher fpi rads like the BI GTX series. i'll look for some of the links. martin had done a test and erh.... someone else had done a test too.

EDIT:
here is martin's tests. as for the other one, i'll have to ask ira to post it.

though i just reread martin's testing. it seems a bit different from what i recall.

So considering that i have 6 identical fans, running push+pull is the best option over gutting 3 and running push with shouds?

Definitely do push-and-pull for the best performance. I have a GTX480 and have 4 high speed Yate-Loons on each side. It performs like a beast and makes the area around my computer super cold.
