I have a SilverStone raven 2 case and will be buying a corsair H60. My question is should i have it exhausting or in taking air.

Exhausting is not how Corsair likes it; they typically want it to be an intake, because the cool air from outside better cools the system. However, if you have intake fans (which I believe your case comes pre-equipped with) the interior air should be fine, assuming your video card also exhausts it's fan outside the case.

This is the way I build. Two 120mm fans taking air in will keep a GPU (with exhaust) and a CPU cool in most cases. Once you have the CPU cooler as in intake, dust goes from a "once in a while" maintenance to an immediate concern. Always filter the intake fans, and have the cooler as the output, and you will protect yourself from dust-related overheating.
