i would keep all the fans that are in there running, keep the system happy by keeping it cool

use something like aida32 click here to monitor your case and cpu temperature

fire it up and click computer/sensor

i would leave the rear fan as is

disconnect the side one if you want and monitor the temperature and see how it goes after a few hours of playing games or similar.

re position the side fan in the lower front of the case to give better airflow.

do not disconnect the cpu fan,you need that.

click "storage/smart" to keep an eye on your hard disk temperature also.

I am running XP1800 & running 5 fans along with the CPU fan, exhaust blower & hard drive problems but pretty noisy @ night when everythung in the house gets quiet *L*
