Harddisks Fan - Should it blow or suck?

Hi all!

Im unsure about that. Imagine the fan which sits in many cases directly
in front of the harddisks.

Should it suck air into the case or blow it out like any other fans at
the back of the case.

since it sits in front of the case it could suck to have a nice airflow
from front to back.

what is right/the best?

Sucks in the front, and blows out the back.

Whichever keeps the disk drives cooler, which usually means sucking
cool air from the outside and blowing it over the disks (as opposed to
sucking warm air from inside the case and drawing it past the disks).
