I'm going to place two 4 inches fan to refresh area where my Flex 6300 is, I'm wondering if right move is blowing or extracting air. As flex right side is open, I will work on left side which towards to wall.

All this is my "sweet wait" for Flex 6600

thanks for your advises and recommendations

Air enters from the front and is exhausted via the rear.

Tim,
Is it better to push air through the front or pull air from the back?

Don't go against the flow.  It is easier to push from the front.

However, Keith's idea is very valid.  A laptop cooler usually work well unless the ambient temperature is really high (+85F)

I use a laptop cooler here. They have two quiet fans in them and cool from below, even without vent holes, plug into a powered USB port

Pulling air from the radio would aid in dropping the internal pressure which would drop the air temperature and increase air velocity.
