Airflow and case/Cooler design

First off, I'm new here. I've had a login for a while, but had not spent any time here till now.

I'm putting together my new system and was curious about airflow in the case and CPU cooler designs. There seem to be two main styles of coolers, those with fans than blow outward from the CPU toward the side of the case and those that have the fan blowing from the front of the case to the back. I'm just curious if these different approaches may be more suited to different case designs and where the fans in those case are located. Haven't been able to find any specifics other than general cooling advice with a web search. (I went with a Thelmaltake V1 cooler and Antec Sonata III)

Thanks.
