I'd go for a neutral airflow. I have two 90mm Vantec fans, one in the front bottom and one in the top rear below the power supply in my case. One brings cool air in and the other takes it right out. Best setup ever! If you don't know what the airflow ratings are for your two fans, I'd go with a negative airflow in your case. Take the two fans and run them together and see (or feel ) which one has more suction/airflow. Then, take that fan and place it in the back.

But make sure that if it's your 120mm fan, it can fit in the back.

Direction of Case Fans
I have an 80 mm fan on my heatsink that is directly below the 80 mm fan on the side of the case. The side fan is sending airflow out of the case. If I install a 120 mm fan in the rear of the case, should it draw air out of the case or into the case? Or should I reconfigure a different way?
