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...

sounds like he's worried that the exhaust fans will draw air away from the rad fans (so that they have less air to push through the rad in the first place)...that's just a wild guess though

Yes exactly. If you don't balance your fans airflow can get just as messed up as poorly placed fans in a case.

IMO for that set-up have the front and rear fan as intake and the rad as the out.

You shouldn't have ambient case temps as a problem as you'll be supplying so much fresh air and as said before any excess air that the rad can't get rid of will be pushed out any gaps in the case ensuring it stays dust free.
