Default Fan placement problem

Here it goes. My fan, heatercore and shroud will be located at the top of my case....inside it. Because of some case configuration issues, I have no choice but to put the 120mm fan at the top then the shroud and finally the heatercore.

Should I push cool air from outside through the heatercore and into the case or pull the air from the case through the heatercore and then let it go outside the case?

The reason I'm asking is that I know that normally you should pull the air but since it would be the air from inside the case (hotter) and not from outside the case I was wondering if I should push the air instead.

Default Hey.

I have a bix with a push/pull fan system on top of my case, works fine. It works like this : fan(push)->shroud(60mm)->bix->(10mm spacer) fan(pull). With the nexus controlling the fans, they're quiet enough.

I also have a 120mm fan intake, and most of the exaust is done through de rad. I think its the best cooling given my case (wich is isnt that good). However, i think it should work in either way (Mine or ambient's).
