that shows you do have a place to mount the fan at the rear of the case..a 120mm fan..get one they are cheap and it will help keep everything cooler and might just be enough to eliminate the crashing/hanging...make sure its blowing out..
I can't tell if you can mount one in the front from the spec sheet ..

If you're talking about the middle circle, I have a fan in the back, 80mm inside, it does blow out. I also installed one on back, instead of the dial-up modem, at the very bottom. It is Cyclone Blower, and it is right underneath video card. After moving soundcard around to make more room for air flow, the computer seems to be working fine at the time. Did you mean installing one outside the case?

no...not outside of case...look in front of the hard drives...some case's have a place to mount a fan there...
also some case's have a screen up front that you can remove and blow the lint and pet hair out of to get the airflow back to normal...they are all different in how you remove them...have to look at the spec's of the case to see how its done

How do you mean? Also, there is phisically no room any more for extra fan. And there are no screens installed on this case.

Thank you.

your welcome..you say you have a 80 mmfan in the back..that photo you attached looked like a 120 mm fan would fit there..if so get one...it will move more air...more air = cooler case = cooler componets

I can't. Some componenets are in the way. Also, there is nothing to affix it on, as the case designed for 80mm. Outside does look big, but that is deceptive.
