My System Specs

Default

Fans 1,2,5 should be intakes
Fans 3, 4 should be exhausts
I would use #6 as an exhaust or leave out and use as a large vent.
Because the video cards your using have blower fans on them the best part of the heat from them is going out the back of the case. Not rising like said in an earlier post. The #5 fan will be doing the best part of the mainboard cooling, due to your having so many hdd's in front of the #1 and #2 fans. Put the fan with the highest CFM in the #5 positon.
That's how I'd be doing it, if it were mine anyways.
