Should i use CPF or cash to pay for my housing mortgage?

Hi, as i am getting my BTO flat soon, i was wondering if i should use cash to pay for my housing loan instead as i can keep the cash in my OA/SA to get the extra interest. Or is a combination of both better? E.g. using CPF and cash to pay for the loan to reduce the repayment period?

In general I always hear people say use CPF. It hinges on your opportunity costs. Money is money, either in CPF or in Bank albeit the liquidity and limitations surrounding CPF Funds thats why most people will say CPF funds. I say use Cash provided you cannot generate a higher return than CPF interest rate.
