Asus Z97-A
intel i7 4790k (cooled by corsair h110i gtx)
Asus 980ti strix oc
NZXT H440
Fans available to me
-4x Corsair SP120
-1x Corsair AF140
-1x NZXT 140mm AF fan
-3x NZXT 120mm fans

I'm trying to find the best possible places to mount each and every fan as well as radiator for performance,
Option 1- Corsair 140AF in rear exhaust, 2x corsair 120sp on the radiator in a push config, mounted to the top of the case, 3x 120mm fans in front
Option 2- Corsair 140AF in rear exhaust, 2x corsair 120sp on the radiator mounted to the front of the case as well as an extra 120mm mounted above or below the rad, 2x corsair sp120 pushing air out of the top
Option 3- same as Option 2 but all 4 corsair fans would be used on the radiator, in push pull mounted to the front and then 2 120's pushing air out of the top

I'm mostly concerned about getting the most air moving over my gpu, any help is appreciated, thanks you so much in advance!

Option 1. While push-pull configurations are better than push or pull configurations, it is not a big difference. With the configuration of the drive cages in the front I would want to make sure air is flowing through there.

Check the CFM both in and out. I would want to be slightly to moderately higher on the intake as opposed to the outtake. The positive pressure environment I believe is better at getting the air flowing everywhere.
