    I was wondering if it would be a good idea for me to buy another fan for hte back of my computer.

    Reasons:
    Power Supply is pretty hot
    Pentium 4 is hot
    Intergrated video is hot

    I have a picture below, and the fan at the top is the power supply fan, so that's the up side of the computer. Would it be a good idea or would it be a bad idea becuase all the fans would be competing with each other

    Thumbs down

    If the fan is not cooling the computer like it should be doing than i think it is time for a new fan. I'm not sure about what would would happen if there is 2 fans at the same time

    They are doing their job but i'd like to add a 3rd fan in that area for extra ventilation. Heat killed my last computer and since it's 50 in my bedroom right now, I probably won't be too worried unti lsummer

    If the fan in the picture is exhaust, add a blower fan on the other side, that will complete the air flow. In between is your processor and that should cool it down a lot.

    I know you got it but I just visualized it, for fun.

    no to sure about that. It must be an exhaust fan, even though it may pull a bit from the PSU, it would be better, cause the PSU has less to move, get me?

    yes - a fan is a must. I would drill out the back panel though, with a core bit. better air flow, and quiet cooling too.

    So the little area in the back would be to let air in?

    I downloaded intel system monitor and it says that the processor's running at 90F which isn't near the real real hot range. But system zones 1 and 2 (where ever they are) are on the yellow

    I'm not sure if the processor fan sucks air up from the heat sink, or blows down on it, but the fan for the power supply blows out of the machine. So a general fan like this would fit. Next time Im at best buy and have the money, ill buy one
