Mobo is msi b550 tomahawk

See, the problem with chassis that have optional front and side fan mounts is that they're both there at the same time; some people go and fill them both up...
A)Don't worry about how it's set up if you're doing it for the looks.
B)Pick one side, seal the other, and use a spare fan up top. Maybe use the side as the intake, since there's less resistance there.
That 'T-boned' airflow you got at the front is needless turbulence and that adds noise.

IDK... if you're not having any temperature issues, do it how you want.

I had a thread in cpu section mentioned how my 3900xt suffer a high temp all the time
Found that it's a cooler issue and bought noctua u14 s and right now I don't have any issues with the temp it's completely the opposite i have an idle temp of 33 and max load temp recorded is 72 till now , thanks for your tips you helped a lot in both threads
