Guys, I've noticed it getting a bit hot inside my case when i've got the side on.

Attached is a diagram of how my fans are currently arranged. Let me know if you think they would be better any other ways..

...and before you say it...i'm not cutting a hole in the top of my case coz i know i'll screw it up!!

I was going to suggest that as well. I am unsure as to where you have it set up but the back of my desk is where a lot of dust is and I dont want to drag more in then I have to, thr front of my desk is much cleaner. I have the back fans as exhaust and the front as intake. The side I have pointing towards the PCI slots and it also helps with the air flow from front to back. I also have canned air to clen all my fans out about once a month too.

Well i think if your shy to cut holes in your case you cant do much. I think top and or side pannel would be nice. You could also go from 80mms in back to 120's. I know theyre bigger but you could prolly do up a make shift adapter.

No other place in the case to stick a 120mm rad + 2x 120mmx38mm fans.

Maybe i'll make some kind of mesh side panel so that i can have the side on...but still have the same airflow as if it was off.

maybe set the bottom of your two 80mm to be an intake. you only have 1 intake fan and 3 out at the mo, not inc. psu.

Hmm...take off the side pannel and get a large person fan. that would stand to help a lot too. And also if you could get that fans air into a smaller duct blowing on something.

I've got 3 fans blowing in at the mo, the 2x80mm at the back and the 1x92mm on the side.

Do you think i should have one of them as an exhaust?

sorry read the diagram wrong, how about change the top 80mm to exhaust, get rid of more hot air that way.
