Hi,

To add extra cooling fans you are going to have to cut the chassis to make vent holes. I guess you could in this way cut a hole in the side panel for a 12cm fan which would have most effect.

You could also consider replacing the fans already in the case with high-quality product with more airflow.

 

Use a program such as AIDA64 extreme (free trial) to perform a stress test on the PC and see the various temperatures to see if a change is necessary.

Hope it helps,
