You are fine with what you have. I bought one of those big side fans but I removed it because it really created a LOT of dust in my case.

the downer is that its bigger, takes up quite a bit of room,but pros is that it moves air much more and is alot quieter...just like he said.. for example, a 80mm fan pushes 25cfm at 5,000rpm(that's pretty loud!!) and a 120mm fan pushes about the same in 1,900rpm(cant even hear it)...but it takes a bit more room.

I have that side panel on my case:

- It doesn't seem to push a whole lot of air, but i imagine it's effective to some degree.
- It's NOT loud at all, trust me.
- It DOES pick up a lot of dust, as stated.
