Default Push or pull?

I have a cosmos II case and have mounted the h100 radiator at the top of the case with the stock fans on the other side blowing down through the radiator.

I don't have room for fans on the other (internal) side for "pull" fans.

Question is, can I reverse the fans on top to "pull" instead of "push" to exhaust the air? Should I?

I tested this in a 600t. Temps were basically the same under load. Idle was a bit higher with fans pulling. But you temps were much higher with fans pushing down. I had rear fan as exhaust on push down and rear was intake with h100 fans pulling up. So not much diff. IMO pulling up is more efficient for the rest of the case.
