martin's testing has shown that very well.
you're right the geometry of the rad and power of the fans would make a difference. it seems to me that it could also matter which side you placed the fan for either push or pull depending on the geometry. ie it might push better from one side if the fin geometry is not symmetric. kinda like water blocks with specific in out ports. i just can't imagine a pull from one end being better then a push from the other though. I'd love to see a link to those tests just to read them if you dont mind posing. not arguing just want to check it out. at the end of the day experiment is the decider, ALWAYS..

no problem.

thats martin's old tests on a TFC rad.

i gotta find that other test about pull.

EDIT:

here is a good post from ira-k. he did some of his own testing too. lots of links too.

here is a post from transonic. he did some testing too. not as extensive as ira or martin but testing none the less.
