Plan to put h60 as back fan and the two be quiets on the top. Idk how those 3 fans should be orientated for intake or outake though. Any help would be appreciated. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

You can easily have the AIO for back exhaust and 2 be quiet fans as top exhaust. Then keep the 3 stock LED fans as front intake. 3 fans in and 3 fans out and that would be rather balanced for airflow. Will be like a wind tunnel in the case.

As Tetsuclaw said, having 3 intake on the front is plenty, and then the fans on the rear and top of the case should be exhaust. This creates positive airflow, which can help cool your components down a little easier.

easy. any rear or top fans = blow out of the case. any front fans = blow into the case.
