Default my cm690 airflow?

will this work? i mean will more lower temperature and produce excellent air flow...

cyan = 3x existing fan
green = 4x zm-f3 fans
purple = 3x future fan ( buy more zm-f3 asap)
yellow = 1x future 80mmx80mm fan? or smaller? it looks small gap between under the mobo tray to another side...

blue arrow = intake flow
red arrow = exhaust flow
yellow arrow = intake flow from other side into under the mobo tray

I think the fan for the power supply SUCKS in air. Not too sure but that's what i think. You can also use the cable management holes in your case if you haven't already, since your picture is blurry i can't really tell lol.

The bottom mounted fan on teh Corsair takes air into the PSU and exhausts it out the back
