    A certain someone who never listens to me thinks this is an ideal configuration. I'd like a third party to comment.

    Air is blowing into the case from the top. You want it to blow out from the top. Heat rises.

    Edit: Didn't see the fans blowing out from inside...yeah that is all wrong.

    Not always true. Cold air is outside your case. If you have a liquid cooling unit you want cold air to pass through your radiator. All personal preference and trial and error.

    Are those right next to a heaters that runs along the bottom of the wall?

    I love the second pc in the background that appears to have nice stuff and appears to be not used at the moment.
