Hello
given this case: http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6564
how should the two side fans be oriented, should the blow air out or suck it in, or should the top one blow it out while the bottom one sucks it in etc

Thanks.

If your processor fans blows onto the CPU (as normal) then they should blow in onto it.

most people have both fans as intake so they blow onto the CPU & GPU

frankly i find that side fans actually create more heat unless set to high RPM, since they break up case airflow. I have two intakes up front, one out in the back, and one out up top. MY CPU wont break 40c and my GPU won't break 60c

*edit; your link also has both fans as intake at the bottom of the page labeled "4"

As the other members said most sidefans are for air-intake.

Well, i have them set up as intake (as per instructions), i just wanted to see if it isn't better to change them.
Thanks
