Default case fan

my friend inform me that side case fan like this on the COOLER MASTER Stacker 830 - COOLER MASTER Stacker 830 Evolution RC-830-KKN3-GP Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases is bad for air flow is that true?

Default Re: case fan

It can disrupt the flow of air from the front to rear so technically it may be bad for blow but you are forcing a lot more ambient temperature air into the case which is good.

It's kind of a trade off I suppose...
