I wasn't exactly sure where to post this question, so I'm just going to put it here. I am almost done with building my computer and really this is the last question I have before everything is ready to go. I have a Lian Li PC-61 case setup with 2 intake 80mm fans, 1 rear 80mm fan, and a custom 120mm top blowhole. So, my question is, with the addition of the 120mm fan should I change how airflow will be...normally the 2 intake fans would obviously intake air, and the fan at the back would exaust it. So, the 120mm will be the exaust as well since heat rises, but should I now change the rear 80mm to an intake to pull in cool air for the cpu? Thanks for the help.

Trial and error is your best bet here.

I would just leave the rear fan as exhaust fan. I think it is more important to have equal or more exhaust fan than intake fan. This is just my opinion, though.
