well the front one should be intake fan pulling air from outside, top fan should be pulling the hot air out, rear fan should also pull the hot air outside the case. you will not see the cpu temp difference as that's dependent on how good your cpu cooler is, your motherboard temps might improve tho

Airflow should be cool air in from the front(intake), and warm goes out the back and top(exhaust).

The side with the fan bracing is the exhaust side of the fan. Therefore, on the back and top of the case, the bracing goes toward the case. In the front, the fan bracing goes away from the front of the case.

By "bracing" I am refering to the spokes that hold the fan blade assembly to the outer ring. The side with the "spokes" is the exhaust side.
