Hello,

So I am having a bit of trouble with cooling my computer I wanna know what is the best thing to do... I do not have any case fans + my computer is in a cabinet with only one side open (right side cabinet is open). What you guys think its best thing to do? Of course putting my computer somewhere else but that is not an option.

I am planning to buy 2 time Noctua 120mm fans and 2 times 90mm fans ( 120 front air in, 90mm side and back air out.) You guys think this will bring down my CPU and overall computer temp? Also will it hurt my computer to remove the side panel and put a fan to the side? Other people on the internet saying that it can harm your computer because the airflow isn't at it's best than. But my thoughts are that the normal is keeping all my components really cool.

My setup:

ASRock B75 pro3-M (will upgrade to B85M pro4)
i5 2500k + Noctua NH-L12 ( will upgrade to i7 4790 (no k)
16GB RAM
120GB SSD + 1TB HDD
Corsair HX650

Cooler Master Elite 342 it already had a 120mm in front but that one is broken and I want to replace it with noctua fan 120mm. Also I can take my older case which has place for 2 120mm fans

depending on the grpahics card you may want to place the side fan as an exhaust. some blow hot air into the fins, some pull hot out away from the fins. in the 2nd case you'd want the fan as exhaust.
