Rad should go in the back. Pretty much defeating the purpose of having one of those having it mounted so the heat is still blown in your case.

I disagree. While it is indeed taking heat from radiator into case, it is also sucking cool outside air from front of case THROUGH the radiator (like a car), instead of hot air from inside the case.
The way my stuff is set up, it wouldn't get adequate airflow in the exhaust fan position (as an intake), because its like 4" from the wall. A couple tests ive seen done with the h90 set up as exhaust vs intake show intake at least a couple degrees cooler (corsair also strongly suggests using it as intake for this reason), and this makes perfect sense for the reason I stated above. cool outside air pulling through radiator makes it much more effective than inside hot air.
that, in addition to the gigantic 240mm exhaust fan on top along with the pretty big 140mm rear exhaust fan, I don't think it is introducing too much hot air into the case to be vented.
HAF 932 also has gigantic 240mm intake in front of drive bays and on side panel.
so im positive airflow at this time, which I like better. if I wanted to go negative I would turn side 240 around to exhaust. too many dust bunnies in my house for that lol. In a lesser case without the enormous airflow of the HAF 932, I could see the need for it being an exhaust.

Yea I have had and have replaced those ****ty large CM fans. They push squat for air dude, and they're 230mm.

If you had decent intake fans to begin with the air inside your PC after negative pressure settles will cool your rad just as effectively as an exhaust. THen, you have way less extremely hot air being dumped into your case and being sucked into your GPU. I own a HAF 922 (scroll back a few pages) and had to replace all 3 of those 230mm fans from CM because they are just terrible. Front and side got replaced for Bitfenix Pros and the top houses my 240mm rad with Noctuas. It provided much more airflow for my 580s and 6 HDDs. The CM fan in front at full blast couldn't even push enough air to reach the other end of the HDD cage.

Edit: Ok I sounded like a total dick there. I'm not trying to tell you what to do with your machine or anything. I'm just saying, I've had experience with several of these Corsair units since the year they were released in a wide array of cases (personal and customer builds). One of the biggest advantages to them is exhausting the heat directly out of your case when paired with proper airflow. The HAF series is made for high air flow, but they definitely don't really have high air flow out of the box. If you like it that way and it works for you, by all means.
