Question Should I use side fans at all for optimum airflow?

Hi there, I am building a pc inside a Phanteks Enthoo-Pro2 case: https://www.phanteks.com/Enthoo-Pro2-TemperedGlass.html

I have 3x 120mm (pull) intake fans at the front of the case for the AIO. 3x 120mm intake at the bottom. 1x 140mm exhaust rear. 3x140mm exhaust on top.

Would I benefit from 2 extra (120mm) side fans as intake/exhaust? Or could that interrupt the current airflow?

Any thoughts!

The airflow is more important than the number of fans.

Intake fans will only cool the nearest part (like CPU fan) while exhaust fans will create an airflow (like the PSU and rear fans).

If you have a case with a lot of fans, it's recommended that you follow the manufacturer's suggestion.
