I've got a kolink k1 inspire case and it have only one exhaust fan on the rear side however i can easily fit another fan there but i don't want the airflow to be neutral so i wonder if i can make the second fan intake.

What do u mean by 'run the airflow in the case'
Well you want your airflow to go smoothly through the case ideally from lower front to top rear. If you add an intake fan next to an exhaust you’re drawing in cool air and it’s either gonna just be sucked straight out by the exhaust meaning no hot air is being exhausted only fresh air or create a vortex in the case which isn’t great for cooling.
