This is my case I'm using for a new build. Its lays horizontal just like in the picture above. Has 3x120mm and 2x 80mm. What is the optimal way to have the intake/outtake setup?

I would have all the fans outtake except for the 120mm by the PSU.

Bottom as intake, top as exhaust.

It looks like the 120mm fans are filtered, use them as intakes and the 80mm's as exhaust.

So everyone is in agreement have the 3 120mm blow air into the case and have the 2 80mm suck air out?

putting this together soon. Does everyone agree with the 120mm's as intake and the 2 rear 80mm as outake?

Do you want a zero balance? I'd suggest making that front 120 an intake.

Either way have two 120 in one way, then the two 80 and the other 120 going the other way. Should have the best balance for the air flow.

and remember its a horizontal case. So everything is just like in the image. When facing the front, the left side has 1x 120mm (and psu), right side has 2x 120mm, and 2 rear 80mm fans.

so having the 2 opposite facing fron 120mm blow air in. Then having the bottom right 120mm and the 2x 80mm all suck air out from the corner?

really not sure what I'm going to do.

Most information on this subject is for standard tower designs.
