Thoughts on Airflow setup for my 270R

Using a corsair 270R case and planning my airflow setup. Using two fans mounted on my CPU Cooler (represented by the big gray square), one exhaust fan on the back of the case, one intake on the front, and one exhaust on the top. Red arrow = hot air, and blue arrow = cool air. Thoughts on this setup before I start putting it into practice? Thanks in advance.

Hey. What components are going to be tamed (cooled) here??

 

I recently did a comparison of 1v2v3 front case fans fyi.

 

The more, the better.

 

But if you only have one, it's best to have it mounted on Front-mid, so your GPU exhaust air's also pushed to the back.

 

Next best is Front-top & Front-mid, so you have a fan for each the CPU & GPU.

 

Ideally though, to keep your motherboard components cooler, 3 front fans are best.
