I've ruled out negative air pressure as I don't want more dust build up than is necessary. It seems to me that neutral would be best, especially in the NZXT S340 that I'm looking at as a new case. It has four fan mounts, 2 in front, one on top, one in the back. I figure having the front be intake and the top and back be exhaust is best, since that would create a nice breeze over the components (to quote ATM, isn't the whole point to achieve airFLOW?), but I've heard having more cool air pulled into the case and having it sit there for a bit while it cools down the internals of the case, before being pulled out by the lesser amount of exhaust fans, can be a better scenario. In this scenario, I'd put the exhaust up top (heat rises, right?). Just kinda looking for the best arrangement for this case. If it matters I'm looking at the white version, and using 3 140mm Corsair AF fans, and a single AF120.
