If space allows. You can always hack up your case with a hole saw and a dremel

Modding a case for fans is not always a good idea. Cases are designed to position fans so that there is a good circulation of air. Adding extra fans can disrupt the circulation and even make the temp hotter.

not always, but top fans are always good to have. Thats where people usually cut a hole for a fan. Good circulation of air is all up to the user. Orientation of the fans and how many fans there are. Position of fans isnt always the most important. CFM of fans, static pressure, orientation, negative or positive case pressure are all more important than fan positioning.

If you want to add more fans, just check your psu for more cables. All your fan needs is some juice and some space. You might want to use crazy glue to stick it on the side of the case or try using some type of adhesive to get it to stay in one place.
