And no you shouldn't set the front fans as exhaust. That's idiotic
the ways i have my radiator is set up its the best way as far as airflow direction. less resistance and also the best flow path for air against the chipset and gpu i have smoke tested several configurations and that was the best as far as flow is considered. the top intake blows cold air down on top of the board coolers going parallel with them and also parallel with my ram , witch is the best cooling due to increased airflow because of less resistance. Then the rear pushes that hot air as it hits the gpu and forces it out the front. The rear fan also forces any hot air coming off the gpu and radiant heat away from the chipset and with the two front ( for now till i get my 3 bgears) 140mm take that air and send it out the front. They also pull that heat from the ship set and radiat heat from the Gpu away from eachother. also with this setup it pulls air thru the bottom holes and cool my HDD and gives my gpu cooler air from outside the case with less effort. and last but not least my radiator is offset so all this air freely flows outside and also sets up a type of push pull with my radiator , not pushing enough cfm to do it at 100% efficiency atm but my 3 b gears will. is this the most 100% efficient way? nope but for what i was working with this is 100% the best way to route the air thru my case. and keeps it nice and cool.
