If your pushing more cooler air in the exhaust fans will remove it easily and any excess that isn't removed by the exhaust fans will get out any gaps in the case rather than negative pressure when it comes in the gaps(attracting dust to where there are no filters).

Also think about getting a second fan for the AIO cpu cooler, not only will it help keep the cpu cooler but should improve the amount of air getting out of the case.

This makes sense to me (except for 6 - #6 'bugs me.)
My Coolmaster Hyper 212 intake is fan is on the right, pushing air through the rad out to #3 & #4.

I've got to open it up tonight to add a molex/sata power adapter, maybe I'll take a pic of what really going on. (Wires/HDDs etc)
