Its up to you really, do you prefer warmer/quieter or cooler/louder? what are your temps?

This won't help you most likely, but I just up it to 65% when I game and back to 50% when I'm done.

I'll guess one out though:

60c = 50%
65c = 55%
70c = 60%
75c = 70%
80c = 80%
90c = 100%

cooler and loud is okay lol but either works, ive been idling at around 30ish and 50-60 at load so far

i was told to change fan intake/out take so that the back fans exhaust and the other fans are intake

I gave up on keeping my 580 cool. it was just too dang loud. I run it on the stock fan profile. It loads to 89-90C and stays a LOT quieter than with 80% fan speed running 75C-80C.
It's not like I need this thing to run for 5-years or anything.

Not true at all, you are creating terrible airflow. Usually fans at the front and fans near the front should be positioned as intake and fans at the back and top work best as exhaust to dissipate hot air.
