Default Is this airflow configuration good on my Corsair 750D?

Noctua NH D-15 S with x2 fans

Corsair 750D Case

ASUS Strix GTX 970

ASUS Maximus VII Hero Z97

Sorry about the bad illustration image drew with my spaghetti hands.

might be better to swap the two top fans to exhaust, if for no other reason than hot air rises,
the front pair of 140's should be pulling enough hair in that you don't even need the top pair to be powered on most of the time, try it with them unplugged if you don't have a fan controller to power them off with and see if it makes a difference to how everything is running.

oh and too much air flow pushing into the case and not enough getting out is just as bad as not enough getting in in the first place /

My first instinct would be to switch the top fan to exhaust as well. You will get some passively heat radiation out the top of the air tower and it is probably better to remove it from the case rather than push it down toward the GPU, your other heat source. That said, sometimes things don't work out as you expect. It would take all of five minutes to flip the top fans and run them the other way. You can always try it and see.

Depending on how many HDD cages you have (and where they are mounted) you could always install a 120mm fan on the bottom of the case as an extra intake, after reversing the top fans, of course.

This looks good. It promotes POSITIVE PRESSURE and should keep your interior clean.

Are you talking about the original post or some of the subsequent ideas?
