Default help installing fans

ive got two 120mm fans coming, one is a delta at 120cfm's the other is a green led coolermaster at 90fm

just wondering should i put the delta as exhaust on the top of the case, and the cooler master on the side as an intake? or what. I should mention i have a very large scythe mugen 2 heatsink, so should i have the delta blowing on this and the video card and the coolermaster on top as exhaust?

I'd put the Delta as the intake and CM as the exaust.

The CM Fan is an R4, and those fans are actually 68.7CFM +/- 5%. Where as most delta's will have a much higher CFM.
Just my Thoughts.

I would put the Delta as far away from me as possible.
