I decided on adding 2 intake fans on the front of the case, so now the airflow should go from the front and out the back and out the blowhole up top. Is there a rule about how fans should be installed? seems to me like more should be taking air inside than taking air out...I will now have 2 intake on the front, and 3 blowing air out the back and sides...does that sound right? or should I change to 3 intake and 2 out?

No you shouldn't change it, you've got it right, and the reason there aren't always as many intakes as you think is because when more air is being exhausted, it is the hot air being exhausted.If you have a whole bunch of air blowing in the case, depending on what temperature the fans are blowing in, you'll just have a whole bunch of hot air in your case and one fan trying to blow the rest of it out.

Just keep it the way you've got it.

you must always make sure that there is a balance of air intake and exhaust. otherwise you will not be either taking in enough air or removing enough hot air out. its the fundamentals of thermodynamics. of course it is possible that you can if either the intake or exhaust fans are strong enough equalize the flow by sucking in or removing air out by other means such as the side panels and so on but i dont think this would be beneficial. for further information read the following and if you have any further questions come back and ask it here.
