    Cooling Question

    I have a HP computer, since buying it(3yrs ago) I've added quite a bit and I'm wondering if it needs additional cooling

    PII 266
    64mg Ram
    250watt PS
    4gig Quantum Bigfoot HD
    Video integrated ATI mach64vt2
    sound int. SB pci64
    Maxtor 30 gig 7200 RPM Added
    Creative Encore DVD (decoder card) Added
    Creative 6424 CDRW Added
    MonsterII VooDoo2 card Added
    Scsi card for scanner Added
    3Com Nic Added
    56k modem Removed

    The problem is there is no connector on the MB to attach a fan and there are no available power connectors.There is a removable piece on the front of the case where I could insert a fan ,but I would need to power it how????.
    There are currently two fans the one on the PS and one on the back of the case which forces air onto the PII .There is no fan on the PII and no connector on the MB for one.If I can somehow manage to install a fan should it force air in or out.
    Hope someone can suggest something,

    The only thing you'll need is a splitcable with one female and two or more male connectors on it. Then you just connect the splitcable to one of your other power cables and you have atleast one free connector.
