OK well here is my data.

Once water cooled the N/B was happy with the top 140mm as an intake. Though the cpu suffered 5-8 degrees hotter.

So I decided to make it as an exhaust and well the N/B suffered greatly going from 146F to 186F not cool if you ask me. Though the CPU benefited greatly, the rad was cooling better from 102F dropped to 95F at idle.

So I decided to get a 40mm fan and placed on the N/B and now temps are awesome. 135F on the N/B and 95F on the CPU Idle.

Load @ 100% CPU utilization the CPU temp reaches 126F and N/B reaches 144F.

Hope this helps out others trying to mess with case flow issues. Note intake on the front and exhaust on the rear and top is the way to go.
