I want to set up an intake on my H60 but not sure exactly what fans would need to be changed to exhaust. If both H60 fans are coming in, 1 or 2 side fans are coming in, the psu is facing down, the top fan should be exhaust and what about the front fan?
Can't wait to get this set-up and take some pics! I think I am going to love this case!
As long as you don't set the case on deep pile carpeting, setting up the PSU for bottom intake is no problem.There should be plenty of room to pull in air - and if your PSU isn't too long, you can install another fan next to it also as an intake from the bottom.
Your front fans should be set up as intake fans, and if you are also running side fans as intakes I'd set up the H60 as a push/pull rear exhaust. Corsair has stated in their forums that their radiators can be used in intake or exhaust configurations - there may be a degreee or 2 difference but for the purposes of airflow sometimes exhaust is better for the rest of your components.
If you end up with 2 front, 2 side, and 1 bottom intake - offsetting that with a rear and 2 top exhausts should work just fine. My H60 is installed in my Scout (original, not the new version) with push/pull rear exhaust and the CPU temps were never a problem, even with an overclock to 3.8GHz from the stock 2.66GHz and running Prime95 to stress it.
If you do have carpeting and need to set your PC on the floor - I recommend finding something solid to use as a platform under it. Mine sits on a nice piece of butcher block...edit

and I have the same basic opinion -
