Side fans are alway intake for all the systems I build. Hot air will rise so the best place for exhaust fans are near the top of most cases. Ideally a top fan is the best exhaust location along with the back location esp if you have front intakes. This will create a cross flow thru the case. Air movement is very important in air cooled systems. Even if there is not a top fan exhaust, if you select the right PSU, it will draw the air out thru its exhaust. Just a note, the cases are not air tight so hot air will always find a way out.
