Best airflow for case!?

Case : NZXT S340 (white) ;) https://www.nzxt.com/products/s340-white

I am buying 2 new fans and was not sure the best setup to use them in for this case. I have to ideas where the airflow comes in from the top and back to cool the gpu and cpu, then goes out the front. Or comes in the front and goes out the back and top.

Note, this is not my case, just one i got off the internet.

IDEA 1: http://prntscr.com/eczds9

IDEA 2: http://prntscr.com/eczeyx

Then I can either position the cpu cooler on the front or back depending on what idea I go with.

  1. Best answer
    You should have the front as intake, and the top/rear as exhaust.
    The idea being not only would you fight natural convection from having the top as intake (heat rises naturally) you also would be blowing air to the wrong side of the GPU (fans intake from the bottom).
  2. Your "Idea 2" is what you want.

    Should I get better static or airflow fans for the front, since on the nzxt s340, it has a narrow opening on the front? I think static would be better for that.

  7. Static fans mostly push air better, they dont exactly pull any harder.
    An airflow oriented fan would be a better choice.
