My case fans and my Dark Knight


I just put in my Dark Night air cooler,
coolermaster NV690
Intel I7-920 cpu oc'd to at blck167
Asus P6t Deluxe mobo
OCZ Platinum 6 gigs ddr3
pcp&c 750 quad ps
evga gtx285 stock clock (for Now)
wd 640 gig black edition
Im wondering If I should move my rear exhaust fan to the top and exhaust from there. As you can see in the pic's my cpu fan is blowing right at my rear case fan. If the rpm on my cpu fan is higher then my rear case fan the excess hot air will recirculate inside the case. Im thinking if I move the rear case fan to the top my cpus fan should move the hot air out the back case vent without restriction
What do you guys think?
So far my temps have dropped 10 deg. C w/ cpu oc'd to blck167 it was 82c max, now 71c max running prime95. i used Artic Silver 5, they say after 200+- break in period I should get another 2c-5c better, we will see
