Hello.

Where would you feel like purchasing your fan from?

Also, do you know what the case fan size is?

About 3 1/2 in, a square box surrounds the fan, thats what i measured. I will buy the fan from anywhere. lets say this fan doesnt fix the problem what next, i dont think i can handle a project of re setting my heatsink. also what can i check for to installing another fan in my case so that i will have two fans

I am guessing the case fan is 80mm.

Am I correct?

Yep i would say thats what my fan looks like. looking at my case it seems that i have another spot for a fan. well this other spot looks like the same one as where my current case fan is. this spot where i think a 2nd case fan could go is at the front. how would that blow air out since its against the front part of the case and there is no opening that i can see where it would vent out the air? so should i order 2 of these fans? if i do order 2 how do i know what will fit the connectors on my motherboard? The current case fan is a 3 female connector that connects to the 3 male pins? how would i add more than one fan

Yeah but,

that fan will not produce enough RPM's and will likely still cause your computer to overheat.

The fan in the front of the computer would be blowing air IN, while the fan in the back would be blowing air OUT.

The fans in the front and the back don't need to run any faster then 3000RPM, so the 2500RPM fan he linked to will work just fine. The only fan on my computer that runs more then 3000RPM is cpu fan and that runs at 3500RPM.

I only have one plug for a system fan. Are there fans that allow a double end connector so i can plug another one in. If it not it looks like i am stuck with one fan or is there somethign else i could buy?

Could this be a power supply problem? Do bigger fans put out more air? I have two different fittings one for an 80mm and a 92mm. should i buy a 92mm fan?

Whew!

Your RPM's are terrible and your voltages are whack!

Time for a new PSU and new case fans.
