The main reason for push/pull is that i can tell heat is getting caught up in the wiring mess behind the rad where my PSU and pump is. You can feel it's very warm behind there and since the Red Wings are low noise and CFM, they don't push much out
as long as those cables dont actually obstruct the airflow you should be just fine... if they do, you might want to get some silent 38mm thick fans, they'll do a better job of pushing the air past those cables, as well as trough the rad...
if you're gonna get new fans anyway, i'll recommend these.. http://www.petrastechshop.com/12x38nmfblow.html
they move a decent amount of air, but they're not too loud. they're good quality too. if its still too much, they also carry the Ultra Kaze 1000 RPM's, but just dont mount those in a horizontal position, the bearings dont like that.
if you only use 1 on the intake side i just wouldnt do push-pull, as that would interfere with the airflow. instead, id get more powerfull fans for the push side, and use the fans now on it as casefans or something...
