I'm really surprised how bad the air flow is, as it's a full tower with a very clean install. Going to have to look at getting a front fan installed.
Idle temps have also dropped with the side off from 55c to 41c, now that's a big difference..
Well added a 120 fan to the base, pulling air from the front with no difference in temps
not sure why the air flow is so bad. I've got
1x 120mm fan in base
1x 120mm fan to rear
and 2 x 120mm fans to top
yet even if I just open the side by about 5deg(hinged to bottom) the temps drop by about 15c.
edit, couple of pics added...
