Ideal mounting spot for H150i in a Lian Li PC-O11?

New to all in ones and having this many fans in general. I've seen other people have their radiator in all three possible locations (top/bottom/side) and was wondering if any particular setup is more beneficial then the other. I was also planning to add three fans to each of the other two spots of wherever the CPU cooler is not. Any recommends on where to place the radiator and which fans to setup for push/pull?

You can have it as an intake at the front or exhaust at the top but it is not a big difference. If it is as an intake then the heat of the cpu can increase the heat on the gpu by a couple o degrees. Likewise if you use it as an exhaust then the heat from the gpu can do the same to the cpu. As the difference is small it does not matter much. Just do what you think looks best to you!

Looks good!
Thinking I'll do top radiator as well for exhaust and then intake through side and bottom fans
