Which is better? Side mount fan or bottom?

Hello,
I have searched but couldn't find a reasonable answer so my apologises if this thread already exists.
I recently purchased a Zalman Z9 Plus and love it but the side mount fan makes a low whinning noise due to the mesh on the case, will a bottom mounted fan give as good as results or better?

Thanks,

James

  1. Then where are you going to mount you psu if you mount the fan on the bottom? You could use these:
    Anti-Vibration Fan Mount

    or some of these

  2. i cut all the mesh out of my case, it really helps with air flow, rubber mounting bolts tend to get rid of vibrations, its unlikely to be the mesh that is causing the sound
