I've noticed that a number of cases, like the Corsair 100R and the Cooler Master Silencio series cases have the air intake/exhaust vents for the front fans as thin horizontal strips on the left and right sides of the fans instead of larger vents directly in front of the fans. I would think that these horizontal strips wouldn't be able to exhaust as much air as regular front-facing vents, but I'm a little unsure because it seems like there are a number of cases which sport these horizontal strip vents. Do these horizontal strip vents have any impact, or much of an impact on cooling?
