Are these "deep" fans which provide better airflow for rads, or are they better for moving air around a case?

As always.... great review!

I have been told that these fans aren't the greatest for moving air through a rad. They are good for PUSHING air and not pulling it.

Well I picked up 2 of these for the wife's case 1 to replace a no-name 120mm led POS and a 80mm TT smartfan II after reading this review. Going to install them and blow it out this weekend.
It'll post up the Temp differeces when I do. I think I will see a hell of a drop.
Thanx for the info again SKYMTL

How do these compare to the Scythe S-Flex fans ? I'm looking for good cooling with low noise. I think I'll stick w/ the Scythe S-Flex fan for the Ultra-120, but I'm considering different fans for the case.
