Exhausting fans config........ Why am I getting these results???????

I have a Thermaltake Core V1 case.... running a push and pull liquid cooler at the front of case exhausting air and 2 x 80mm fans also exhausting air at the rear. I have tried all different combos trying to create positive air flow through the case but for some reason I am getting better cooling with front and back exhausting air??? Idle cpu i5 6600k o/c 4.4 ghz sits around 25C and under stress testing after gaming to warm the case up temps stay under 55 C. Even my GPU which sits mostly around 2066mhz o/c when gaming is running 5-6 degrees cooler....

What the......

It it seems fairly obvious.
With the water cooler exhausting hot air into the case, the rest of your components have to deal with that extra heat.
While exhausting heat out of the case it doesn't have to deal with that heat, combined with the sides of your case pulling in cool air.

Well thats what I thought, but no one recommends all fans exhausting out of case. Not that Ive come across, but I am very new to the world of PC building.

You should always be exhausting your radiator out of the case.
So if you were to have the radiator exhausting out the back and the intake on the front, that would probably result in good temps.

Remember, air doesn't know which way is "Front" on your case, all the matter is getting good air flow, and fresh air.
