too many fans = too much
You really only need like 1-fan coming in from the bottom of your case (cold air), and 2-3 exhaust fans that blow the hot air up & out.
I use 2-cold air intakes, and 2-exhaust fans; I also got a heat shield for the back of my GPU so the heat doesn't just spread about my CPU heat-sink.
I have (1) blue fan .. bottom right of my case from picture view, and (1) black fan directly located on the bottom of my case; both draw in the cold air.
The upper left blue fan, and the upper center fan exhaust the heat from my GPU, CPU, and RAM.
So it's constantly circulating.
If you look @ my foot notes, my ambient is 35c (not too bad for a 27% overclock and air cooling) -- that's my old GPU in there, I have a 980 now w/ that heat shield.
