I just built a computer and I am wondering how my ventilation should be. My case is an ULTRA XBLASTER MID-TOWER CASE V2 (
I have 3 fans to put in so just trying to figure out the best way to keep the system cool. Here is my setup:
AMD Athlon II X3 450 3.2ghz AM3 CPU
x2 Kingston 4GB 1600MHz 9-9-9 DDR3 HyperX
AM3+ AMD 760G USB3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
GIGABYTE Radeon HD 6670
Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks!

Intake in the front and one the side, exhaust out the back.

should the one intake on the side be on the top or bottom?

Close as you can to the GPU as possible for gaming and closer to the CPU for non-gaming machines.
