Yeah part of the newer intel spec for cases is that you have a side fan blowing into a cone directing air to the CPU. In fact if you read the CPU manual for newer CPU's they even mention this as a requirement. It does work btw, if I turn that fan off the CPU temps increase.

Oh, and I already have two 120's BTW.
