Fans on the side of case.

Hey, on my right side panel on my tower, there is a Grill at the back where the cpu is housed, i put a fan there as intake.

Is that a good idea????

Its not a bad idea.
What type of heatsink is on your CPU? Water or air cooled?
If its aircooled, it should assist somewhat.
It its watercooled, it wouldnt be that effective.
What other fans do you have, and how are they set up?

Its Aircooled plus a stock cpu cooler.

I have a intake at front, intake at bottom of case, 2 intake left panel, 1 exhaust at back, 2 exhaust at top. i could always get water cooling and also still keep a few fans.

Case Fans
I just installed a replacement 60mm exhaust fan (it is optional with this case), and was wondering, how long should a fan last if a system is being used say 24/7 (not powered down)? I bought two of them (so I have a spare), but does spending more moola equate to longer lasting (the two fans I...
