Here is my current build: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/yopalal/saved/#view=3hxgwP

I currently have two case fans pulling air into the case and pushing it through my CPU's liquid cooler. Although i'm wonder if I should transfer the fans so that rather than them pulling and pushing through the cooler they'd just be pulling through the cooler into the case, hopefully that makes sense.

Here's a pic of my current setup: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zk5qlyqix84zkbb/Fan.jpg?dl=0

There are several video's related to fan placement. My take on it is it really doesn't make a lot difference whether the fan pushes the air through the radiator or pulls it. There was a small amount of benefit using a push/pull configuration. For you that would mean adding 2 additional fans. The more important thing IMO is having the fans pull air in from the front and blow it out the back and/or top. Check out Linus Tech Tips on YouTube and search fan configuration or something like that.
