Hey so I see a lot of things saying positive pressure is wanted in cases however i have 3 intake fans in the front of my case which are 120mm. And a 280mm aio cpu cooler and 1 140mm exhaust fan out the rear. I don’t see a different way this could be done the case is a Corsair 500D SE. Is that fine? Or should I change something. Thanks!

What do you mean? Make the radiator fans intake too? And just have the 1 exhaust fan?

What you have in mind is fine. If you want positive pressure, just run your intakes at higher rpm than your exhausts.

Negative pressure tends to cool better but can suck in dust through unfiltered openings. That's pretty much it though. 

What fans are you using and which headers are they plugged into? Many motherboards have built-in fan control options.
