no im afraid there is no side panel fan
yeah theres a 12cm fan on the front and an 8cm intake fan on the back
would it make much of a difference opening up the grill on the front?
idm, obv but...you know...its blue..and it glows
The air flow from the back of the case to the front and the power supply located at the front are different from what we usually see. Although unusual it should work. If you want you can open/remove the grill on the front and back to improve airflow. I did that for a case mod and several builds.
BTW - The power supply will pull warm air from the interior of the case and exhaust it out the front of the case. That will help with the airflow and cooling.
