To push and pull air would be even better. I have 4 - 12 volt fans in my Light enclosure with all fans pushing air in It only made a 1 degree difference. With fans pulling air out it got 2-3 degrees cooler. With 2 fans pulling and 2 fans pushing It it got over 4 degrees cooler.
Keep in mind that there a few variables to consider
Is the enclosure fully enclosed or does it have an open back.
How much air do the fans move (CFM).
I would recommend that you get the quietest fans you can afford.
At first I had some cheap fans and the noise was way to much.
The cooling was great but I couldn't take the noise.
I got some quieter fans and while the cooling was not as good it got my tank down to 78-80 from 82-84 I had before, and no noise at all.
