I am starting this thread to gain knowledge and information, NOT for a solution.
Ambient Temperature: ~35 C Rig Purpose: Gaming Overclocking NOW: Not till performance drop is felt Overclocking THEN: i5 2500K @ 4.5 GHz
OK, I have took pictures of CPU componenets from various sources and combined them, with scale, to form this image
Case: HAF 922 Board: ASUS P8P67 PRO Cooler: Hyper 212 Plus GPU: HD 6950 (Dimensions match to MSI R6950 Twin Frozr II) PSU: CM Silent Pro 600 (Dimension of legtht is extended by 100mm)
NOW, what i want to know is the best cooling option for this case. On overclock.net i found an article in which it was recommeded to rotate the CPU cooler.
Case 1: ROTATED CPU COOLER ==========================
Query 1: Will cooler fit with rams? Query 2: How will CPU cooler be fed with cool air
Case 2: AS DESIGNED ===================
Query 1: How will CPU cooler be fed with cool air The side fan answers my query [/EDIT]
Case 3: TOP FAN AS INSIDE =========================
Query 1: Will air flow be as i imagined or different? Query 2: Its too much positive pressure, will it hurt air flow?
Which of the above three cases is best. Also i am welcome to other options.

I think that the optimal solution from your alternatives is the intake from front and side and exhaust to top and rear. This uses the natural flow of convection currents, and does not create cross currents and eddies.
