Im wondering if I should have my 120mm fan as intake or exhaust thats right beside my GPU.

I have a HAF 912.

Which would give better cooling?

If you mean a fan on the side of the case it should be intake. Fans at the rear of the case should exhaust.

side fans=intake for 99% of cases, if you use exhaust your starving the intake fan on the actual card itself.

Force cold air into the case right nexto the gfx intake fan and allow the card to do the work (as it should).
