Default Which way?

hey guyz im new on this site, and all other tech sites tbh lol
anyways, i have 4 case fans, one at the front, one at the back, and two on the window at the side...

is it better to put them all blowing in, to get most efficiant cooling or blowing out or in what combo? thnx

You'll probably want to have the two side fans and the front fan as intake (low, cool air). Your power supply fan will be exhausting. Since heat rises and since it should be right next to your CPU heatsink, the back fan should be exhaust.
