    I just bought a new computer which came with the standard exhaust fan at the inside back of the case. However, on the sliding side panel which allows access to the interior hardware there is a grid and screw holes that would accommodate a second 80mm case fan. But like most motherboards , this one only has ports for the CPU fan and only one case fan. Does anyone have any suggestions about how to add a second case fan given this limitation? I live in the Southwest and the ambient temperature around an operating system can be pretty brutal in the summer months so the more cooling power the better. Thanks for any suggestions.

    I have a side cover fan and it attaches through a "y" type connection that plugs into the power supply.
