i would reccoment one at the front blowing and one in the back taking and then on the side above you cpu have one that sucks the air away from the cpu and heatsinks.

Hope this helps

if you can put a vent in the top of your case that's a good place, (remember hot air rises, and you want to blow as much out as possible).

I find with if your PSU has a fan blowing air out that the top isn't needed. i have mine setup as on infront sucking air in,on at the back sucking air out, and one blowing air right onto my CPU on the side panel. i also have one on the top but it doesn't do much.
