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.

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.
