    Installing a case fan:

    Take the side of your case off
    Look for 4 mounting holes in the back side of the case (referr to pix)
    Put the screws threw the fan, screwing through the holes, ie: holding the fan in place (pix are sorta self explanatory)

    If you just want the fan to run when the system has power, you can get one that has a MOLEX plug on it and connect it to a free MOLEX in your system. The MOLEX plugs are the big plugs that are used by the HDD and CD drives for power. Most systems will have a couple free ones, some fans even come with splitters in case you don't have one free.
