Case fan configuration

Ok im debating the intake and exhaust mounted fans on top.... 5 fan setup.. front has 2x120mm radiator mounted intakes.  Back has 1x120mm exhaust.  On rear top i will exhaust another 120mm.. but the top front I'm debating doing it as a 120mm intake.. has anyone done this? I can't find data to debate with myself 

 

Thanks in advance

Just have intake from, exhaust front and back.
Having a third intake will Bess up the airflow, add unneeded turbulence in the air

I could use some help with this!

please, pm me if you would like to contribute to my gpu bios database (includes overclocking bios, stock bios, and upgrades to gpus via modding)

Id suggest moving the rad to the top, it's going to be better for the hot air to be moved out the top, not pushing hot air into the case

I guess but how would you then have the intake on the rear or just rely on negative pressure?

Standard is 2x 140 or 120mm fans at front, one 120mm exhaust (usually airflow fan) at the back.

 

All other configurations are generally for aesthetics, case limitations or water-cooling reason.

Not to be nitpicky, but you might want to route your GPU cable through that hole in the bottom left of your case, it looks a lot cleaner that way.

 

 

Also, nice AIO I have a similar one, mine is a bit older a bit older (#CorsairGang):
