Airflow question

My gfx card is below with the fan facing downwards while my cpu is on top with fan facing the side of the casing. Would the hot air coming up from the gfx below be sucked in by the cpu fan and used it to cool the cpu? What is the best way to resolve this issue? Thanks!

I am using antec p100 and cooler is stock wraith spire. Feel like my cooler is sucking in hot air from my gfx card below..

Can try with a rear or top mounted exhuast fan or jus change to a much better cooler like a noctua. Not much u can do all depends on how good Ur casing with airflow.

Jus googled Ur casing can try a good rear exhuast fan like noctua latest fan nf-a12x25, but best option is to jus good a good cooler
