So here's the deal, currently i have just one front intake fan and i'm planning on adding 2 new 120mm fans but i'm having trouble deciding where the best spot would be to put them.

On the top of my case their are 2 vents and i have 1 vent in the rear and also have 1 vent in the side panel of my computer.

What i was thinking was putting 1 fan on the top and 1 at the rear as both exhaust fans and both of which are right by the CPU so i would think it would help pull the hot air coming out of that. While with the side panel's vent i was thinking of putting one of the fans there as a intake and the 2nd at the rear for exhaust. The intake fan on the side panel would be blowing directly on too the GPU.

So please share some opinions and suggestions for me, i can supply a picture if needed but it isn't up too date due to me just swapping my GPU, CPU, and PSU just yesterday.

That is pretty much exactly how my case is setup so i'll just go with the double exhaust and see what happens, thanks again Blackbird
