New fans don't know if they should be input/output, what do you think?

Ok here is my system:


Case:Sentey Black Box Series BX1-4237 v2.2
Power:Thermaltake Black Widow W0319RU 850W ATX 12V v2.3
Mobo:Intel BOXDZ77GA70K LGA 1155
CPU:Intel Core i5-3330 Ivy Bridge 3.0GHz (3.2GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 Quad-Core
RAM:Kingston HyperX 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3
Video:EVGA 02G-P4-3660-KR GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB
HDD:Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD2500HHTZ 250GB 10000 RPM

All running Windows 7.

Ok here is what's going on:

As you can tell if you look here
http://www.sentey.com/en_productos_details.php?tipo=Gab...

The case comes with a massive 220mm fan on the side pannel. The case also came with a 120mm fan in the bottom front, and one on the back top. Right now the front fan is set to input while the rear is set to output the 220 on the side is also set to input. I have also taken the opposite side pannel off(FYI). Now there are 3 more fan slots available, one on the bottom by the power supply(which I can't use because my power supply is to big) and 2 on the top towards the rear. All the extra fan mounts are for 120mm fans. Ok so I have 2 new 120mm fans for the top 2 slots. My question is how should I arrange the fans in terms of input output settings? Also in terms of airflow should I put the other side pannel back on? I've been doing some research and experimenting a little bit. But I can't come up with anything definitive. So I want to know what you think.

Thanks ahead of time,

I have no idea why you would want to leave the opposite side panel off. But if you install those 2 x 120mm fans in the top, have them exhaust. (although they are probably not needed.)
