Default Radiator fans, what do you think

With a push/pull setup, do you guys think there would be any gain from using a radiator optimized fan (in my case the Noctua F12) on the PULL side of the radiator rather than a more conventional fan (in my case the Noctua P12). Both these fans are have similar airflow, the only difference is the direction of the air and the static pressure. so i dont see any gain from using the F12 on the pull side of my radiator when i would actualy rather have it spread the air out anyway. I already have two P12's and would not like to buy two F12s if i can get the same results from a combination of the two fans. thoughts?

F12 Noctua.at - sound-optimised premium components "Designed in Austria"!
P12 Noctua.at - sound-optimised premium components "Designed in Austria"!

Depending on the system in question and components I'm gonna say the gains would be minimal at best. That is coming from a Noctua fanboy.

Well if that was the case then you should be getting a couple of Delta's.
