Since you have a top fan exhausting air I would say point it up and let the

top fan expel the heated air.

AHH!!

The CPU cooler fan blows are towards the heatsink.

You want the CPU cooler fan to be facing down so it blows air up through the metal heatsink, and then warm air pulled away by the top fan.

If you put it the wrong way...

EDIT: the images say the top fan is 120mm because I made these diagrams before for someone with a similar situation a few months back.

 This is what I said. Blow the warm air out the top fan.
