I understand that shrouds are attached to a radiator, and the fans to the shrouds. (If this is incorrect, please throw something at me.)

However, I'm not sure if I should use push or pull. Will be using some San Ace fans in push or pull or both. My initial plan was to use a total of 6 fans, 3 push 3 pull for my 3x140mm rad. With San Ace fans, is 6 overkill?

Do I still get the benefit of a quieter rig if I have fans in pull? I think I need them in push, GTX 420 is a high density rad.

Thanks all.
