Question RE Zalman Z11 case

Hi all,

I recently purchased the Zalman Z11 case which has 2 side venty things where the HDD cage is located in which there are 80mm fans on each side. I noticed that these fans exhaust air out of the case. My question is whether it might help overall cooling if I reposition these fans to blow air into the case so that, along with the aid of the front fan, the air will be pushed up and out the back and top vents. In my head that seems to make more sense since it will help CPU cooling and maybe GPU cooling aswell.

Any thoughts?

That's what I thought. Was pretty surprised to find them positioned as exhausts. Thanks for answering and confirming my thoughts.
