For fans, there are three choices that I'm aware of if you want to push air through the rad, rather than pull. These fans are focused with a high static pressure. Their CFM will appear lower, but are more effective at forcing air through tight spaces.

Corsair SP120 High preassure - (has a quiet version too)
Noctua NF-F12 PWM 120mm Focused Flow
Silverstone SST-AP121 Air Penetrator

It may just be a marketing vid, but Silverstone posted a very informative test on youtube that shows the difference quite clearly. http://youtu.be/8m8fC809TK0

If you are pulling air through, then high static pressure is less of an issue.

Oh the irony... looks like someone put an article together just for you. http://www.anandtech.com/show/6177/c...h-corsairs-h80
