See, you've got a small tradeoff to make with that regardless of which position you place it in.
Front intake: better for cpu thermals, worse for gpu
Top exhaust: better for gpu thermals, worse for cpu
Pick your poison, and roll with it.

See it depends upon the setup, an aio as intake will cool cpu with fresh air, but if you place it as exhaust then it will try cooling with the inside dirty air, so intake is better, also depends upon the setup
