Best use of a second case fan for good airflow?

My motherboard supports 2 case fans. One of these will be the pre-installed rear exhaust, but I was wondering where I should put the other 120mm fan I have to get the most efficient airflow within the case.

I'm using a NZXT Source 210 case: http://i.imgur.com/0IbLpNP.jpg

I read that using the front intakes in addition to the rear exhaust would provide the best airflow. The question I have is: which of the two front intakes should I put the fan in? The top or the bottom? http://i.imgur.com/tvbLPPT.jpg

And if it makes any difference, my hard drive will have to be in the middle or lower bay slots due to my GPU's size.

Bottom. You can always try it both ways and see what works best.
