Not likely. If you were to install them as intake and force CPU waste heat off the box down toward the GPU plate, you might create a little heat tornado (figuratively speaking). As exhaust, it might aid in pulling waste heat off the CPU radiator (there will always be some radiant heat from the top). I suppose theoretically if you minimized the rear exhaust speed and then maximized the top exhaust and bottom intake, you could move more GPU waste heat into the lower side of the CPU cooler box. This is going to happen anyway to some degree, but I suppose you could make it worse. In reality, all you would need from the top/bottom supplemental fans is a trickle of speed which is almost always better than passive exhaust. You want the front and rear fans to be the workhorses. That ensures CPU + GPU waste heat goes out the rear and the front fans are the only ones that might help get some air going between the GPU and CPU coolers. If that becomes a serious issue, 3x120 on the front will give you a more focuses and higher airflow through that sector.
