change the two upper to suck hot air out, and change any side panel fans to suck air in

Change the top two to pull hot air out of the case, change the back one to pulling cold air in.

Well, I did some testing on my own. My GPU fan is a pull fan, with rear vent, so if I suck, then it decreases the amount of air my GPU can suck in ( I think ) and gives me higher temps.

Agreed with the others saying turn the top 2 fans to pull air out. Side/front are the only ones that should be intake, imo.

This is my airflow:



I have no exhaust fans at all. Instead, I have removed the rear fan and rear grill. This allows air to go out silently. Because I have open spaces at the rear of my case (no rear fan grill; no slot covers) the air makes its own way out, and quietly. The problem with an exhaust fan is not only that it makes noise, but it may not be capable of handling all of the air brought into the case by other fans.
