Does anyone have the xg sidewinder case? if so are the side panel fans intake or exhaust? also I have a 120mm fan for the back, as I have ordered one of these cases and should be mine middle of next week, should that be used as an exhaust fan? would it be worthwhile investing in another 120mm fan for the front as an intake/exhaust fan or should i get an 80mm fan instead?
help would be good if anyone can suggest something.

I assume that is the one with the 2x80mm side fans under the rectangle side window, with a 120mm rear fan and a 80mm front which can upgrade to a 120mm.

If that is the case then :

The 2x80mm side fans are intakes and are noisy.
The rear fan 1x120mm is exhaust
The front fan go with the 1x120mm option and set as an intake.

cheers
