Default Tower Cooling

Is it better to blow air into the case or out?

In my case, My computer is coolest with 4 Intakes and 1 Exhuast.

You need to experiment to find out which is better.

Wouldn't the best be zero pressure (ie; 2 intake, 2 exhaust?)

Too much exhaust is the worst. It leaves little air inside the case, and plus air will seep in through any little crack inside the case, causing a lot of dust buildup in cracks.
