Hey, what would the best fan setup be for a H500M Case (2 big fans on front and 1 on back) and H150i AIO (3 120mm fans on radiator), would something like front fans pull in while the rear and aio fans psuh out work the best?

Yes in most cases this is how they are set up.

It wouldn't make a noticable difference to internal temps which way the air moves, however you will more than likely feel more comfortable having the warm air blown out the back then into your face.

so the aio fans should NOT pull air in then? thought it would be good with air comin in from top and front being pushed out by rear fan and through cracks :p in my head it went (more cooler air in is better) but guess im wrong

Remember that Heat rises. So your GPUs hot air will go to the top. Having the aio and a rear fan will help suck out that air faster. Also if you had your AIO as an intake you would be dumping a lot of hot air into the case. That would be a lot of work for the back fan to dump all that hot air out.
