Short question.

The top back fan, I have it set on pushing the air outside but maybe setting it on blowing inside might be a better solution? 
Looking for some feedback here :)

If you have air intake in the front, it is best to have that as exhaust. You don't want to ahve competing airflow, intake in the back and front blowing against each other is no good.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

You want a tunnel effect, not just a lot of air swirling around. This will get the hot air OUT of your machine as well as blowing cooler air on your components.

As fasauceome said above, if your front fan is an intake then keeping the back fan as an exhaust will provide the best air flow for cooling. I cant see that having all your fans pull air into the case would necessarily create air 'flow' in the case.

 

Based on your case having a top mounted power supply, you could have the back fan as an intake and the front fan as an exhaust. This could possibly give a more concentrated air flow to your CPU and help the power supply to take cooler air in. But if the front intake is filtered, I would stick to a front intake and back exhaust personally.

As everyone said - nope.  Leave it as exhaust.  Thermal dynamics - heat rises, it removes that risen heat.  If it didn't - it would swirl around in your case getting as hot as it could and struggling to find a way out through any seam not pushing air in.

Oke well thanks for this clear answer. I might have envisioning problems.... The flow provided by the front fan is easily conceivable. Especially with a working gpu you can imagine the air flowing up. 
BUT THEN
A weird breeze from the cpu fan will meet it. On the back there is something that sucks air outward.. right above you have a psu intake if i'm not mistaken.. there's also the pull off the cpu fan at the same time and not to forget the cooling air pushed through the cooling fins of the cpu fan right into the intake of the psu.. its like a giant vortex fueled on a negative value..

Why is your GPU placed so low?

Could switch positions and place your sound card (is it?) to a slot near the bottom as it don't really get hot.

 

Could get some adapters and move the drives to the drive cages above and remove the obstructions so your gpu is taking full advantage of the front fan (if the gpu was moved up)

 

What about the PSU, is there holes in the top so it would be turned around?

If not, consider making some holes in your case so you can turn the PSU around, isolate its intake/exhaust so its not a part of your problem anymore.

 

And lastly, please clean up your cables, zip ties is a pretty good invention for that

 

 

...if you do all the above im pretty sure you see a big difference in your temps all around

yeah but you really don't want all of the hot air to go through the PSU

 

if you use the case without the side panel you could remove the rear fan

I'm guessing that mobo only has single PCI slot and thats where that expansion card is.

Actually, it has 2, there is a PCI slot right under there where the GPU is, so if the GPU was moved to the PCIe in the top then the PCI would be freed and could do as I suggested for most likely a good improvement in airflow

Its actually prepared to fit a big 1060 card... That card does become pretty hot and if I use the lower slot it can pull a lot of cold air from out of the outside... on that height my case also has a lot of little airsleeves running on the side and I figured through there it can loose some of the heat the gpu generates... and yes its a sli board... underneath the pci x 16 slot is still one x8 pci slot but if I use that slot the sata connections are obstructed ( cables and stuff ) the 1060 runs regularly on about 70 degrees so I wanted to have somewhat more space there. 

the 1050 could be used in the upper pci slot where the air from the cpu fan will help with cool the backplate from the gpu but for I now I choose to  push it downwards, especially because the 1060 has an insulated backplate that only leaves about a cm of free space between the case and the card..

I'm not sure what will be more helpfull … for the 1050 it really doesn't matter because most of the time that card won't even reach 50 degrees but with the 1060 its another deal.. If I put it that high I will create two airzones and if I put it low I hope to avoid creating areas where there is no addition of fresh air... I migh even consider an extra small fan in front of the psu.. that either sucks or blows ...

The new situation.. changed the location of a couple of cables, replaced one sata 6gb cable with a 3 gb cable.. that 6 gb cable made way to much noise.. got some room between the ssd and the hdd for cooling and sound purpose and thinking about relining the power cables... so many weird connections, ofcourse this system started with 3 drives more ( dvd burner something else another hdd ) of wich i'm not sure which can be replaced but i'll get to that in the coming weeks
