andrew brunner,

I would not install a fan on the side because the air would not flow right. If you already have a fan on the front and the back of the system then you might want to look at blowing air on a particular part. What are you trying to cool?

Hi there,

There are aftermarket heatsink/fan units you can purchase for a graphics card, but also the fan on the front of the case is down the bottom, so it's blowing in and pretty much over the hard drive(s) and onto the graphics card. If you already have a fan here and still wish to get better cooling, you may wish to upgrade the fan on the front to one that moves more air.

Of course, if your new graphics card isn't having any hassles then perhaps don't worry about any changes for now, just keep an eye on it as you have mentioned.

Cheers

Troy
