I've tried to put in more fans but its hard to get anything else in that
box, and I don't want blowhole type fans which keep me from being able
to stack the machines.

Sometimes building a kind of box around the left side and putting fans
in that can help.

Of course, the way fans work is your flow can't be more than the input
fans, plus what you suck in through other places.

I suppose you could try putting better fans in the power supply, but
that might not work out.

It's really too bad they used such slow fans, because otherwise the
boxes are very nice.
