Having side panels open is fine if you're room doesn't have a crap load of dust flying around everywhere or kids running around.

hmm, i have to disagree because having more out than in means there is a negative pressure, thus constantly providing fresh air as some is sucked in to keep up with the exhausting fans. but the downside is dust starts to gather around cracks and such
