Are side case fans counter-productive?
I am buying a new case [My old one is too cramped and gets way too overheated] I've look at MANY cases and I heard that cases that have fans on the side [Clear sided Cheiftec] disrupter the air flow. Is it better to have just front sucking in and back fans sucking out or is it more optimal to have side fans as well? Does this cause a "Whirlpool Effect" inside the case trapping hot air in pockets?
I'm am trying to decide purchasing a Cheiftec Dragon Series[Dragon has 1 side fan and 2 front and 2 rear fans]  and the new Cheiftec BX Series [BX has 1 90 mm on each side panel of case,2 front, and 2 back fans] Please let me know.
