Faster Fans Sucking or Blowing?

While putting togther the order for my new Antec 1080B I want to buy two more fans to throw into the two empty slots up front. Now my question is, should I put the higher cfm fans in the front (sucking air in) or in the back (pushing air out). I would at first think that the faster ones should be in back pushing the hot air out. What do ya'll think? Also, does anyone have any expirience with the Antec variable rate fans? Good/Bad? Thanks
