Default Side Case Fan....

ok, so, i was thinking of installing a fan on the side of my case (side case fan...)

I was just wondering, how would i be able to open my case when this fan is plugged in? (as the fan will be on the case "door")?

See if you can find a power cable extender or splitter and use that sh when you open ur case u can either disconnect the cable or just set the side next to the case

Get one that can fill the entire side, and when its spinning you'll still be able to see through it. Like a 400mm or something (one doesn't exist I don't think, but yeah )
