Proper H60 and Case fans set up help!

I'm just finishing up my new build for gaming, I am overclocking a 1045t, I have an H60 I want to push/ pull on the radiator I will be using the COUGAR CF-V12HPB Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing fans.

I have the corsair 200r case.

I am looking for a proper case fan setup and push pull method for the H60.

There seems to be a lot of mixed opinions on the issue. Some say push the air from inside the case through the radiator and out the back. Some say pull cool air in from the back through the radiator and into the case. The second method seems to make more sense to me..

I have 2 120mm cooler master fans on the top of my case exhausting air
I have 1 120mm corsair fan in the front pulling in air
I have 1 120mm corsair fan on the bottom pulling in air
I have 2 120mm cooler master side fans pulling in air. Is this the best way? Only the top two exhausting the air? Also I have seen setups where people actually flip the corsair 750tx psu and have the fan on top rather than pulling in air from the bottom. Any ideas? Which fans should be pushing and which fans should be pulling for my case?

My preference is to have the rad fans exhaust out the case since I prefer not to dump heated air into my case.
In your case I would keep the fans as they are and add the H60 push/pull exhausting out the back (I think it'll fit there)
