I have a 230mm side fan and a 140mm blowing from the 5.25" bays. I don't always have my side panel on, but the 140 definitely helps with temps.
EDIT: Now that I think about it, you can see what's going on in my profile pic.

But with my old 280's in SLI it made a big difference plus I then attached a fan directly blowing air in between the cards which lowered temps by 5 deg.

Hey Pittster, I noticed you have TY-140s on your NH-D14. Where you able to use the Noctua fan clips to install them? I just bought two of those TY-140s second hand and was going to use them on my D14 when I got the rest of the parts to build my second system. I wasn't sure if you could use the Noctua fan clips on the Thermalright fans. Are the fan clips easy to take off the Noctua fans and put on the Thermalright fans.

Also, is there anywhere in Australia that still sells the TY-140s brand new? The person I bought mine from said that he bought them from PCCG, but they don't seem to sell them anymore.

Sorry to go off topic.

Yes you can use the clips and the inserts that go into the holes, but it is a tight fit. I recommend needle nose pliers, some muscle & alot of patients to get them in, apart from that they work fine. In that picture they are actually in the centre of the cooler even though they look like there hanging out the top.

I actually bought those before PCCG stopped selling them, but it looks like these guys have them.

I get better results running the side panel fans as exhaust pulling out all the hot air from the GPUs and sucking cold air toward them from the front and bottom intakes rather than blowing the hot air all around inside my case.
