Front/bottom as intake, back/top as exhaust is the rule you should stick to. Stuffing as much air into the case as possible from all direction is not what you're going for. The idea is to create a uniform air flow across all the significant electronic components, taking away the heat they generate, and moving it out of the case. For that you need both intake and exhaust, and the more uniform flow (in one direction) and less turbulence (different flow directions), the better this process of heat removal.
