Default Sides on a computer?

Is it better to leave one of the sides off on a computer tower for more air? Or is it better to keep it on? I've seen both a lot so im not really sure? And I do notice when I keep mine off my computer seems to run a little cooler, well my video card anyways.

keep it on, because that is the way it was designed to move air throw the front and out the back or top on some aftermarket case, so if you leave it open the airflow isnt doing its job and it can be worse than good.
