The back fan doesn't HAVE to be exhaust. I prefer to maintain positive pressure inside a case for less dust coming in so if one more fan is needed back panel is a good spot. That fan slot isn't filetered to my knowledge so i wouldn't recommend using it as an intake without aftermarket dust filter.

You mentioned "rad" in one of your posts, what kind of CPU cooler do you have? AIO watercooling?

Its a coolit eco alc which is very similar to a h50. which I have placed in the back section; with one fan pulling and the other fan is pushing, doing this gave me a idle temp at 32-39 degrees depending on ambient temps.

Alright. Are you not satisfied with a certain part of your cooling set up? Do you want more aiflow for example or less noise?

air flow isnt a major issue, temps are perfectly fine but If its available then why not take it tongue.gif, preferably less noise, who likes noise tongue.gif

Well adding more fans wont bring your temps down all that much maybe 2-3c. Adding fans will always add noise to your rig. Honestly if you are happy right now why fix what's not broken smile.gif
