It depends on the fan speed and how the radiator will be oriented in your case. Pull is more effective with RPMs below 1500, push is more effective above that point. More important than that is too follow your case's designated air flow pattern. Most cases draw air from the front and bottom and exhaust out the rear and top. Generally it is a good idea to stick with the pattern as hot air rises so you don't want your fans fighting convection.
