Default Installing fan in side panel

I would like to get some more cooler air in my box. I have vantec stealth fans, one in the upper back exausting and one on the bottom of the case( has a cage around it) bringing in air, which I really don't think is bringing in much air. Kinda a stupid place for a fan is'nt it? Most cases I see is the in front of the case at the bottom. I was thinking of putting another one in the side panel. Should it go near the bottom as intake or over the cpu fan as an intake. I was thinking of a blowhole but I would have to remove everything and just finished putting everything back together yesterday. (was'nt thinking). Any suggestions. Thanks in advance.
