[SOLVED] Do 9 Lian Li ST120 fans for the o11 dynamic make sense?

Apparently they're high static pressure fans and someone told me that those should only be used for the radiator while all the other fans should be airflow fans. But that would trigger my ocd. So should I go 9x high static or 3x high static + 6 air flow fans. Thanks in advance for your help.

Unlike airflow fans, static pressure fans can be utilized for pretty much any application.
Airflow fans have fewer practical applications, but when used correctly, are actually better than SP fans in said applications:
-Exhaust fans
-While they haven't been a thing in chassis as of late, there were models that had spacing for fans on the inside. Example: NZXT's Phantom series had internal pivot fans.

Airflow fans can also work as intakes, but it must be open mesh. They quickly lose pressure against anything else. Example: Phanteks P400A, 300A, 500A, and Cooler Master's H500.
