Out fans:
80MM Exhaust fan 1 (right side of picture): http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/163/1000250k.jpg/
120MM Exhaust fan 2 (back of case): http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/705/1000249q.jpg/
In fans:
120MM Intake fan1 (on side panel): http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/801/1000246b.jpg/
80MM Intake fan2 (bottom of case): http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/32/1000245m.jpg/
Cpu fan:
120MM CPU fan: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/152/1000247c.jpg/

Is this a good setup or is there something better I can try?

  1. Can you mount fans in the front? That would be considered intake..

    I can mount one fan in the front of case. I was actually thinking about moving the 80mm fan that is currently at the bottom of case to the front and then the 120mm from side panel to where 80mm fan was. Any thoughts?
  3. if you can fit the 120mm in front then do it, and leave the other 80 where it is, or best scenario (and quieter) is replace the 80's with 120's so all are 120mm
    as a general rule of thumb though, front bottom and side intake, top and rear exhaust

    Got it. Should I move the top exhaust fan close to the rear exhaust fan or leave it as is? The reason I ask is it's right beside the cpu fan.

    Do a measurement of temps over say an hour with the fan where it is, then move it and repeat, keep whichever give you the best temps,
    sorry for what seems like a copout answer there, but identical setups in different environments will behave differently, what works on mine may not be optimal for your room
    personally I'd have both top slots occupied, not just the one
