I have an Antec Nine-Hundred case, and I'm using an h80i CPU cooler, which is taking the place of the back fan. I was wondering which fans I should have on push, and which ones on pull. I'm kinda PC retarded in a way, so sorry in advance. Thanks!

Front should be intake. Top/ rear should be exhaust.

Dont know the case well but I can give this much advice. Be very careful not to just throw fans were then seems like they fit nicely. You could mess up the airflow in the case and leave pockets of hot air or places were air doesnt flow at all and make sure you never use more quantity or more powerful exhaust fan than intake fans because you'll make a vacuum and your pc will be filled with dust in no time. Good Luck hopefully someone gives you useful help unlike me giving beginner tips just thought i'd post it anyway though incase you didnt know
