Computer/Desk airflow?

I've seen how airflow works on towers. But what about if you are using a computer/desk like Lian-Li's DK-01 (which I am using). Which do you think is more efficient at removing heat?

 

Standard (see standard airflow.jpg)

3 intake from the left

3 exhaust from the right

1 exhaust from the rear*

2 exhaust from the front**

= 3 Intake & 6 Exhaust. If you count the PSU and GPUs blowing air out the rear then that's 9 Exhaust.

 

Changed to (see Airflow change.jpg)

3 intake from the left

3 intake from the right

1 exhaust from the rear*

2 exhaust from the front**

= 6 Intake & 3 Exhaust. If you count the PSU and GPUs blowing air out the rear then that's 6 Exhaust.

 

*FX-series AIO Liquid Cooler.

**Two R9 295X2. The two red arrows at the bottom of each image are the GPUs' radiator/fan placement where it blows air downward through the vents at the bottom.

 

Information on Lian-Li Global | DK-01 there.
