Ah I see you took a look at my system specs and may have a case with fan placements on the side panel yourself.
Majority of generic flimsy cases tend to have these side panels with the option of installing fans on it.
I personally do not think it's necessary, especially with the front design of this case and the majority of contemporary cases out there which have more than sufficient cooling on the front as well as the top.
BTW my Lian-Li does have a fan on the side panel, it is not screwed in to the side though.
It is linked to an adjustable runner which is connected to the rear of the case, so can be adjusted to the length of the video card and where the source of heat is.
