That post doesn't make any sence, but no matter how many fans you have, you want the air leaving the case through the rear and top faster, than there is going in from the front, so that the cold air is being pulled through your case from the front to the rear and top, because hot air rises as its pulled past your components and then cools them down. So, you want the front to be intake fans and to be relatively slow, and the rear and top fans being faster, to create a pulling effect through the case by negative pressure. If there`s too much air coming into the case and its not going out the back and top fast enough, the air will linger inside the case, preventing hot air escaping, creating positive pressure. Hope this helps. Ive got the smaller case than yours and set up the way i`ve described, it runs wonderfully cool. You can tell its pulling the air through nicely if you set paper over the side case inlet and the paper sticks to the case through the sucking effect. Before you install the gpu fan obviously, if you have one. Its not necessary though. If you do get one it should be an intake also, providing the gpu with cold air. Ive got my rear and top fans on high to make sure there is enough negative pressure pulling all the air through the case.
