The rig is about 3 - 4 years old now and has had no issues. When I built it back in 09 it had a lot of the top hardware at the time. Now that the fans have stopped working the computer over heats VERY fast when I am playing a game. I mention that the LED lights have also stopped working as I think it might be a wiring issue but was hoping for some other to confirm it and/or tell me what pieces I should buy. The case I have is here: http://www.newegg.co...m thickness ATX

Please help!

:welcome: TaxDeduction
With the minimal information you have provided it is hard to advise you, what hardware is in the case?
PSU, MB and add on video card (if fitted) are very important.

Thanks for the additional info :thumbsup:
The one thing that I suggest you do if you can is try a known good PSU before purchasing any other parts, if you can`t do this consider having yours tested by a Tech who has the relevant specialist equipment and knowledge.
