Yeah, that's right. However, I have 2 fans running, so they could either go on the MB or directly to the PSU (which is what I did). This way, the fans are always running at 100%. This just left the pump, and I put that into the CPU fan slot. The radiator fan has 4 prongs because it's a PWM fan, which gives speed control. Plugging it into a 3 pin header will make it run at 100%, so if you don't mind it running at 100%, then the 4 pin connector can be put into a 3 pin header.
Other than that, there's no difference.

But yeah I think up top should be better results for you.
I tried putting it on the top as exhaust, the temperatures were virutally the same - maybe a degree or two drop.
Intake in the rear dropped about 3c...still not much
perhaps trying AS5 on a last remount attempt might help?
