Opening SOME of the water tight doors in the bow?

I've had this nagging question in my mind... What would happen if not all the water tight doors were open, but say... the first 6 or 7? Would it settle the ship a little more evenly and make it so the ship would sink slower allowing more time to get off? Or would it make the ship sink faster?

Sink faster.
The first 6 compartments were already flooding (the 7th would be BR 4) how would open doors as you ask make the ship settle more evenly?

I thought opening some of the doors would make the water spread out a bit more evenly so the ship settles a bit.
