    All fans at the back should be exhaust to take the heat away from the CPU, you may want to but one or two quiet fans for the front if you have the option for front fans.

    Also is that the stock cooler on the CPU? If it is you may want to buy a new HSF, and use some Artic Silver 5 when you install it.

    Before you go and buy fans for the front though make sure there are little to no obstructions in the front where the fans would go.

    many thanks lover2004. yes its a stock cpu cooler fan. i have already had a fan put in the front. i presume no obstructions mean nothing in front of the direction the fan is blowing the air in which case it hasent.

    Yes, if you are using a IDE drive I sugest you go to this thread and see what it has to offer, lowered my temps quite a bit by increasing airflow.
