Default heatercore fan question

i have a single heatercore radiator that can equipped with a 120mm fan, i was wondering if i should make the fan blow cold air onto the rad. or have it acting as an exhaust fan.

well on every fan on the radiator.. its a exhaust fan. I actully did alittle test. On my aquarius III that i used to use, i added a extra fan. I used it as a exhaust. I also but a extra radiator in there too. But i thought about it alittle.. if i make it a intake and make it so the air is going into the fins of the radiator wont it cool off the water better? well i was wrong. It actully made it hotter. So make it exhaust.

isn't it the same thing the other way around? if it's exhaust?
