Need opinions on how I should set up a pc with two AIO's

Budget (including currency): 


Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: 

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

I have a Phanteks Eclipse P600S case and I am planning on putting a Kraken Z73 360mm rad CPU cooler in. I also recently just got a MSI 3080 Sea Hawk, which is an aio style hybrid cooler with an 240mm rad. what would be the best orientation for both radiators?

The CPU will be hotter. That radiator will be wanting to push hotter air. I'd do the Sea Hawk AIO on the front as intake, rear case fan as intake and then the Kraken on top as exhaust.

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.

Why is the 5800x so hot?

The rear fan does not have a filter like the top and front of the case do, will that effect dust built up in the case?

All AIO fans outward, cpu at the top, gpu at the front.

back fan intake, add one more fan under the gpu as intake at the front.
