Default Fan config, any suggestions?

Hello all, I'm trying to decide the best fan config to use for my system.

I currently keep my side panel OFF and have two standard fans in the back setup as intake. I don't know anything about how best to config these things. My vid card sits right below my CPU and it gets VERY hot. I'd like to keep my side panel on if possible, the inside keeps getting very dusty. I have a good heat sink now, so temps are ok, but would really like to have a proper fan config for my system. I have an extra 80mm fan I'm not using, was debating cutting a hole in my side panel and using some electrical tape to place the 80mm directly over my CPU and blow cool air onto the CPU. Can't believe the amount of heat that vid card generates.

Looking for any suggestions, any at all
