Should top vent for the case should have exhaust or intake fans?

Just because you think it is right, it doesn't make it right for everyone. Even you.
You're being trolled only if you let them.

I would put them as intake and have only the back as exhaust. Positive air pressure means less dust in your case.

You might want to rethink your logic.

And it depends on how many fans he's running. Also the size... I can see where you can get positive from that. On my rig I've got a 140x2 for the 'back and 120x2 for tops.

I've got 7 fans and it works perfectly fine, barely any dust even after a month.

So..exhaust?
I current have 2x140mm fans for intake on the front of the case, 1x120mm fans for exhaust on the back.
I do have a CM 212 Evo 2 fans facing the back of the case, which the air is flowing through 120m exhaust fan.

Yes, exhaust. Generally you want to intake from front, side or bottom and exhaust through back and top.
