What's the best airflow configuration for a h100i heatsink in an NXST Phantom case?

I have a Phantom case with 1x200mm fan on top that's an exhaust. I've got my heatsink set up with the fans as an air intake inside of the radiator (i.e. pulling the air through the radiator into the case). the only place to mount the radiator is at the top where the 200mm fan is. What's the best way to set this up? I thought about pulling the 200mm from the top and putting it as an exhaust on the side of the case. I guess I can also the 200mm and make it an intake for the radiator

just replace the 200mm fan
leave h100i as exhaust on the top

i dont like 200mm fan personally :)  better use silent 140mm and 120mm fan setup

^^ Yes, install on top as exhaust.

So, push the air in the case through the radiator? That won't cause problems?

No, set it up so it exhausts the air out through the top.

I guess I'm a little confused. I understand setting it up as exhaust, but If I do that, warm air from the case will still be going through the radiator, as it's exhausting out the top, right?
