Good morning guys, I hope you help me with the following. I have a blower type graphic card and I want to know what type of airflow I should use. I attached a picture of the case with everything inside. The case has 3 front, 1 rear and 2 up fans

Not a fan of that case, no pun intended. The first top fan is going to literally pull the fresh air from the top front fan right back out of the case making them both about useless. Your orientation is fine though. 3 front pull in, everything else pushes out.

So long as those front fans are intake, bringing air INTO the case, and those top and rear fans are exhaust, taking hot air out of the case, then it is good the way it is. I might actually either remove or disconnect that top fan closest to the front. It's probably counter productive, but since you don't have a tower cooler, the effect isn't going to be as noticeable as if you did have one. Even so, that fan is probably just making noise for no good reason. Maybe even remove it and close that fan location off with some black plastic or painted sheet metal to keep airflow moving to the back of the case where it needs to be.

As to the graphics card, the configuration is fine. Those fans have no real affect on airflow in that portion of the case.

I see no issues IMO with that case model. It is fine for that hardware configuration.

I think I'm going to remove one of the top fans (I'm also going to see if I can fill that part so air doesn't escape), for less noise and more fresh air in the case.
Thanks for the help.
