Air flow in a case always gets screwed up with a rad. Just make sure that your intake/exhaust fans don't blow faster or move more air than your radiator fans
That is the opposite of what I believe.

More intake pressure creates positive pressure inside the case providing cool air for the exhaust and pushing air in excess of the exhaust fan capacity out of the case via the open areas.

If exhaust exceeds intake you have negative pressure and the added requirement is sucked into the case via open areas and dust along with that as they are unfiltered.

Edit: as I read that again I'm not really sure what enaberif is getting at with the highlighted text...
