I would switch it up a bit. You have a lot more positive airflow happening so IMO maybe change which ever side fan is highest up to blow air out instead of intake. That way you still keep a slightly more positive flow of air to prevent dust buildup but having it closer to a neutral flow of air usually means better cooling.

thats true, they say you should have an equal number of intake and exhaust fans, so maybe you should change one or two of the side fans to exhaust.
