Default Coasir 280X RGB Case

I like to put together a system with this case. But I have a number of concerns.

1) The default front fans are they taking air in or they are taking air out?
2) If I install another 2 fans on top, 2 fans at the bottom, would the top fans and bottom fans affect air flow in opposite directions?
3) I want to reuse my i5 -3570K Ivy Bridge CPU, can it be used on the latest X570 motherboard which fits into the 280X RGB case?

Thanks for replying in advance.

1+2) Basically most users set the front / bottom fans as intake and the top exhaust. And this case is believed to be designed with such air flow direction.

3) No. 3570k doesn't fit at all in X570 MB which has AM4 socket.
