A side fan like this can be helpful when added fresh air intake is needed. That most commonly comes up in systems with multiple video cards, but other hot-running expansion cards can also benefit - like PCIe based SSDs and RAID controllers. If you do not have any of those things in your system, then skipping a side fan will help reduce noise slightly and give you a bigger viewable area in the window.
Note: Available only for the windowed versions of the Fractal Design Define R4, Define XL, and Arc Midi R2
If a case fan upgrade kit is purchased, the kit also applies to this side panel fan. If no kit is purchased, a Fractal Silent Series R2 120mm fan will be included.
