Nothing saying you can't mix and match the AF and SP in your build. From some reviews that I've seen the AFs perform just as well as the SPs on thin radiators (i.e. H100, etc.).

What about a REALLY thin radiator, as in 25mm thin. My plans are to have the entire loop installed internally and I should just barely be able to fit a 25mm 240 rad with 2 120mm fans at the top of my HAF 912. And I was actually planning on mixing the fans. I'm thinking two AF series fans for intake and two SP series fans as exhaust on the radiator in push.

Stick to the SP fans for the rads.

I have a mix of both in my build and the SP's are best suited for the rads for sure.
