I don't think you will actually notice much of a temperature difference. I didn't when I tried putting fans on my side panel. Also, adding them to the side might actually cause a bit of a buzzing or humming sound because of the slits.

On cases that have the side panel openings for fans towards the rear like the Scout they usually don't help that much. If they are mounted more towards the front they sometimes help GPU temps. It's worth a shot though so if you have a fan or two available to you try it to see if it does or not.

Otherwise, take some zip ties and mount a 120mm fan in the 5.25" drive bays blowing towards the cpu. That normally has a greater effect on overall temps, and especially cpu temps.

I have no fans on the panel, I find that there isn't enough air being drawn in from the front and thus dust starts getting sucked in through the panel. Time to replace the perspex in the panel...

I have 2 F12's in the side panel,but only to give my case good pressure for the h50 and give my air cooled cards cool air to work with.
