IF THE CASE IS HEATING UP WITH THE SIDE CASE ON AND COOLING WHEN YOU TAKE IT OFF DOESNT THAT MEAN YOUR CASE ISNT DISSAPATING THE HEAT FAST ENOUGH SO YOU WOULD NEED MORE SUCKING OUT?? AW HELL I DUNNO

^^ You know, I read some studies about case fans and temps, but I can't seem to find it, or else I would elaborate more. I think it might have been at overclocking.com somewhere, but I am not sure.

1 fan blowing in on the CPU, I prefer a 92mm
1 fan exhausting from the top of the case, I use a 80mm

I find that you need to balance the ammount of air being forced in with the air being exhausted out. Otherwise your fans will be struggling and not running at their most efficient rate.
