Default Fan cooling question

hey i have a question about the air flow in a case.. since im not quite sure how its supposed to work here it is
how are the fans supposed to be blowing air out?
front of case blowing air in, back of case fans blowing air out, and side case fans blowing air out? or in?
so basically, what would i have to do to have a perfect flow of air in there?

I have two fans on the side that sit above the gpu and cpu, they blow air in, and then a blower fan on the top of the case to blow air out. Otherwise your fans are good where they are. The ones in the front for intake and the rear ones for exaust.
