What is my air pressure (+/-/= or other) with this INSANE fan setup?

If you've got air exiting through holes that have no fans on them you have a positive pressure.

Ok brace yourselves:

NOTE:  PSU and Hard Drives sit outside the unit.

 

For those who the picture confuses here is a bullet point of this insane fan rig:

  • Spoiler

     

    • My current build is using a generic case that is laying on its side with 3 Cooler Master SickleFlow 120mm intake fans pulling air in the front.
    • The side panel (now top) has been taken off and replaced with chicken wire affixed to the case with screen door mesh over the top of that which is glued and duct taped down.
    • A Noctua NF-F12 zip tied under the chicken wire and screen mesh over the graphics card blowing air down in front of the Graphics Card.
    • Placed a metal plate to the right and above the card -directly to the right of the fan.
    • Another Noctua NF-A12x25 fan zip tied to the end of the graphics card and pulled 90* around forward pulls air from the front of the case -passing through the metal zone and gets hit by the air from the fan zip tied to the mesh -blowing air down creating an abundant cool air zone in front of the graphics card.
    • Put 2 Noctua NF-F12 fans on the graphics card -anything is better than stock.
    • Another Noctua NF-A12x25 fan pulling air out the back of the system in the graphics card section.
    • VANTEC SPECTRUM FAN CARD placed in the last motherboard slot for stabilizing air turbulence
    • Another Cooler Master SickleFlow 120mm fan is zip tied over the cpu heatsink main unit -blowing air straight on to the heatpipes of the Noctua NH D14 heatsink.
    • 3 Noctua NF-P12 120mm fans placed in P4 config on the NH D14 unit.
    • 1 more Noctua NF-A12x25 in the primary exhaust position.

     

Take in note that anytime I look in the case from the top through the mesh I get floored by massive air to the face -though that happens in the back of the case as well. Would this indicate positive, neutral, negative or... something else pressure in this system?

 

EDIT:

Yes! I know the fan layout is crazy.

Still it works very well keeping the idle CPU around 17-23*C and the Idle GPU around 28*C and under load CPU never goes above 35*C and GPU only reaches 55*C under heavy load.

You mean with air cooling right?

I bet its run of the mill for liquid cooling.
