im only going to install one of them on the side grill, i cant make sense of the fan specs i.e has it got a high cfm value...etc

but more importantly will it mess up with the airflow in the system since i have 1 intake fan which is at the front 1x140mm which is an intake and the other teoare exhaust fans at the rear and top

thanks

The fan in your first link moves 57.53 CFM (57.53 cubic feet/minute. The fan in the storm sniper do not have their speed or volume data. If your graphic card(s) generate a lot of heat, adding a side fan will help remove the hot air around the GPUs. It'll mess up your airflow, if you are using the classic front to back (intake to exhaust), but will lower your GPU temps.

i have a similar set up, two fans up front as intakes. one back panel fan as out-take as well as a top fan as out-take. I found the side fan actually increased GPU temp when running low (around 1200RPM). My video card

sounds pretty good but when you say you have two fans in the front as intake are you still talking about the storm scout since i cant see where another fan would fit at the front
