Default Fan Setup ?!?!

I planning on installing new fans into my case and was wondering about cfm going in vs going out.

So far I calculated according to specs: 60.9cfm intake vs 174.3cfm outflow.

Is this too big of a difference, or should I add more fans to intake more air?

What case do you have?

EDIT: if you want less dust, then have more exhaust than intake. If you want slightly better temps, then more intake...

Correct me if i'm wrong
