I have a 1060 6gb installed and when playing PUBG, while the side panel on with 100% fan speedss, it reaches 72 degrees celsius, but when I take the side panel off it gets to 48 degrees. I have 2 front, intake fans installed and one exhale on the back. The sidepanel is closed, with no holes, it's just a metal sheet with plexiglass . I can not use a fan on the bottom of the case. Should I install 2 more exhale fans on top? 120mm ones.

THIS is the case.
I got a i5 7600 and HyperX Fury DDR4 memory, the main problem I think is the mobo, it's mATX and keeps my components tight.
The fans came with the case, just some 120mm fans.

Large temp differences with the case panel on vs. off is an indication that you do not have optimal airflow inside the case, even if temps are within acceptable range. It just means it isn't as good as it could/should be.
