Default Few questions. Adding fan

I'm going add an extra fan. Not use if I should do a PCI, 5.25'' bay fan (Think they got them), or a normal fan. I don't over clock or push my computer to much but my hdd's and CPU runs a little warn.

Right now I only have the CPU fan/PSU fan/1x80mm (maybe its a bigger mm I guessed) case fan on the back.

So any recommended?

Also I noticed the case fan plug in though the mobo. How can I tell if I can plug another fan though my mobo?

Side note*If the fan someone recommends to me needs a 4 pin power hook up it'd be nice if they could also point out where to get a 4 pin splitter that has free shipping. I wish newegg had free shipping for small stuff like that.

I suggest you install the second fan on the front of the case.This will create a nice airflow inside the case.
