Make sure there is an INCH gap from the LEFT of the case, because the metal cleft from the pcie mounting bracket blocks airflow.
Also, fans need SPACE above and below them to properly move their rated CFM... the reason the stock type fans don't do a good job is because there's no space beneath them
Top and bottom spacing should be around 2cm
You can test this for yourself if you don't believe me.. Plug a fan in and put your hand real close, notice the air pressure is GONE and you get back flow on the reverse side near the rim.
Basically imagine air as a liquid, if there isn't enough space the Fan will simply be turning "Through" the liquid, instead of MOVING the liquid. Edited by tp4tissue - 4/25/13 at 12:35am
