Adding a 200mm Xigmatek side fan also reduced CPU temps by another 2c. So not much difference in temps by adding the side fan at all really, I have a GTX 480 which sits at about 74c (under 100% load, fan @ 50%) and the side fan doesn't change that temp at all. Very nice looking build though.
Strange as mines 21-22 with that fan and 27-28 without, but it must be the gPU mines just a 5770 and I dont game "yet" that only runs about 34c, I found those two side fans not much use.....thers just a myriad of choices with these cases, there the nuts
