Intel/Nvidia future proof build

Would it work well if I had the two 140mm on the front as intake and the x61 behind them, and would it proved good airflow to the rest of the build and the radiator?

I wouldn't do your idea with the intake + X61

The reason is that the air that you pull in would warm up when it cools the radiator. therefore heating up your components. The S340 has a spot to mount the X61 Rad and it comes with 2 fans (120mm but the slots fit 140 if you want to replace.) I think it has plenty of airflow without that.
