My System Specs

Question Push/Pull fan design/setup question

I'm debating on getting new fans for my rig. I'm looking at Corsair SP120's. Part of my loop has an XPSC RX120 that has push/pull fans already. It's a super thick and very airflow restricting rad. My question is.... if I replaced them would it not make more sense to use a fan such as the AF120 for pulling air through this rad? SP120's are designed for creating high static pressure to push air through highly restrictive coolers, but can they suck just well? According to specs an AF120 moves just as much air at 2/3 the rpm as an SP120, so I think it would suck harder. Both would be controlled by my Crosshair V and therefore running at the same rpm.

Thoughts?
