I am curious about something, I know about positive and negative cooling but here is one thing that I am not sure on.

 

I have 2 140mm fans at the front, pulling the air in, and I have 1 120mm fan for exhaust.  My curiosity is there is room at the TOP of my case for another 2 fans.  So if I have another 140mm fan for air intake, and then another 120mm for exhaust would that be a waste of time, or should I do 2x 140mm front for air in, and 2x 120mm for exhausts?

As we know hot air rises and cold air sinks. So you can leave 2 fans at front and add second 120mm fan for exhaust to existing on back side. Or just add one for exhaust on the top of case.

You can get better cooling by adding 2 exhaust fans on the top
