Push/Pull on top of case help

I want to do a 240mm rad with 4 fans in a push/pull config at the top of my case. Should I:

1) Have the bottom 2 fans push air into the rad and the top 2 fans pull air out of the rad and through top of the case,

or

2) Have the bottom 2 fans pull air from the rad and the top 2 fans push air into the rad from the top of the case?

I read somewhere that it is good to have exhaust out the back and top, so the first one makes more sense to me. Idk. Help appreciated.

I would say option 1.

BUT I would just get 2 good fans with decent static pressure. Push pull only makes sense with thick radiators. Only advantage would be running all 4 fans at reduced speed for a more silent build, which if you get 2 good fans that shouldnt be an issue.

On your part's list you have the corsair H110 which is a 280mm liquid cooler.
