Good day TSF!

My case supports up to 6 x 120mm Fans (1 Rear, 2 Top, 3 Front). I have this 240mm AIO Radiator mounted on front.

Assuming:

Rear Fan (1) = Exhaust
Top Fans (2) = Exhaust
Front Fans (3) = Intake

However:

<- Direction of Airflow (Intake)

Inside <- 120mm Fans (2) <- Radiator <-120mm Fans (2) <- Room Air

Or, do the exhaust airflow?

Assuming:

Rear Fan (1) = Intake
Top Fans (2) = Intake
Front Fans (3) = Exhaust

-> Direction of Airflow (Exhaust)

Inside ->120mm Fans (2) -> Radiator -> 120mm Fans (2) -> Room

I have an Intel Core i7-7700 with idle temp. of 37C under room temp. of 28.6C.

What could be the best possible airflow setup for my case? Actually, the front panel has only vents on the side and bottom, not literally on the front which I believe restricts the air from entering.

Cold air is denser than hot air, so hot air rises. Best to have the top and rear (also at the top?) fans drawing hot air out of the case. Is your case nameless? The side and bottom vents of the front panel are enough for letting in cold air, not to mention the three front fans drawing massive volumes of this cool air and pushing it through the radiator. This is the most common airflow setup and it works just fine.
