Hello, i have a corsair 220T case, and have 6 fans. What is the best way to setup my intake/exhaust fans? There are 3 in the front, two on the top, and one in the rear. Both the front and top have dust filters btw.

I normally set up my PCs to be air in at the front and air out at the top and back. Since the less dense hot air naturally rises it just makes sense to me.

Since hot air naturally rises
This only applies when there isn't an external force - this is crucial in a passively cooled PC.
A fan, craps all over that concept quite easily.

Aside from that, I agree with the rest.

Depends on your hardware, but there's usually a minor tradeoff somewhere.
