Windows 7: Recommended fan setup for coolermaster 430

Recommended fan setup for coolermaster 430

Hi, I have a CoolerMaster 430 Elite Black, I was wondering what the best setup for my fans would be. I currently have 5 case fans, one at the front for intake, two on the top as intake, the rear as exhaust and the side panel fan as exhaust also. Should I leave this setup or change it? What do you recommend? I was thinking of changing one of the top fans to exhaust and putting the other on at the bottom of the case as a exhaust so it blows air directly to my GPU, and changing the side panel fan to intake.

Front intake, rear exhaust, side intake, top your choice intake or exhaust or one each.

I would run all but the rear as intake to maintain a good positive pressure. If you use quality air filters you cut dust by up to 90%+. Are you running 120's or 140's?

Thanks for the reply's guys, in the end I left the front as intake, side as intake, rear as exhaust, I have two top fans which one of them is set to intake and the other set to exhaust, btw they're all 120mm.
