Sure, top 2 fans + back fan sucking air out. 2 on side blowing air in. bottom sucking out. 1 in front blowing in. With this setup HDD heat is sucked out bottom BEFORE it can heat up other componets. The fans on the side suck in cool air for CPU and GPU and the 3 fans suck the heat out from mobo heatsinks and CPU heatsink. This makes for 2 separate cooling zones (hdds and gpu/cpu). With an overall negative air pressure to help suck the heat out and cool air IN.

did you put one on the back, behind the mobo. I tried but could not close the back on it, I have ordered a slimmer 80mm
the Silverstone FM83 for the back, it comes with two speeds 1300 rpm or 3600 rpm. I have the top 2 sucking, the side ones blowing as well as the back and front.
have not tested it out yet, still not finished building the system yet.
but will let you know

And your Heatsik fan is blowing air at the back fan ?
