Nzxt Phantom + Corsair H60 Liquid cooler

I just purchased an Nzxt Phantom full tower case and have a question regarding the fan placement. I currently have a Corsair H60 CPU Liquid cooler with two 120mm Enermax Cluster fans, at 1500 rpm in push pull at the back of the case. I purchased an additional 200 mm fan for the side of the case, however it will not fit due to the two fans running push / pull in the back. Would it be better to remove one of the rear fans to allow more space for the 200mm side intake fan? Or should I keep it the way it is? Are there substantial benefits to having a push pull on the CPU, and do those benefits outweigh the additional 200mm intake on the side of the case?
The other fans in the case are as follows: One 120mm (Enermax Cluster 1500rpm) intake fan at the front of the case, two 120mm (Enermax Cluster 1500rpm) intake fans on the side of the case, and two 200mm Nzxt fans blowing out at the top of the case.
This machine is not a power house. I’m just starting to learn about computers and welcome feedback from more experienced builders.

The H60 will work fine depending on your OC

It really depends if you think your CPU needs the cooling more or the rest of the system needs it more

(run the H60 as intake, it will be better for cpu temps and can offset losing push/pull by a bit)

easy question and answer.
