    The local Tech guy suggested to add a another fan to my case. I have an old power box. what would be the easiest way to add the fan off it.

    First look at the motherboard for and extra fan plug. It should be a small white plug thet has three connections within and is usually on the outer side of the mode. Then go to your local pc parts store and buy a fan with hthe plug attached. If you don't have a perforated backside to your pc or no spot on the empty space on the side then you'll have to cut one for it..


    The backend is usually the best for only one extra fan and have it exhaust the air out of the case.

    If you cant get a mobo 3 pin fan then go for a molex 4 pin one (same connector as u use for your HD and CD drives.

    Don't imagine there are any two wire plugs on the motherboard but check in the mmanufacturer's site for a manual and if not then you will have to hard wire in from the power supply.
