æArchOAngelæ,

As long as the fans on the side and front are intake, and the ones on top and back are exhaust, you are set up.

To add some further thought to the topic, is it better to run with the side of the case off, or on? I have seen mixed reviews about this practice. Currently, my case has the side off, cuz it sits in an enclosure, and I hate taking it all the way out to take the side off to look inside. Still has the front, rear, CPU, and PSU fans running, plus I threw a 120mm (free-standing) on the open side for good measure.
