Default pc,run cooler

Hey everybody my cpu runs at 42-48c is the max its been which im pretty sure is cool, but i wanna put a case fan or a PCI slot fan into my computer
It is 430w btw only 1 hard and a external harddrive 2 run games off of. it has 2 fans in it and the card only requires 400w thats about it.

My power supply has 1 x Main connector (20+4Pin)
1 x 12V(4pin+4Pin)i need for cpu
6 x 4 Pin Peripheral Connector
2 x SATA
2 x 4Pin Floppy Connector
my graphic card doesnt require a pci-e 6pin which was good and i dont know whether 2 get a case fan or pci slot/ right now my computers side panel or door i guess is off i dont know if it runs cooler on or off but i think if i got another case fan or pci slot i would probably put it on anyways any help i can get is appreciated thank you./ p.s im anoob im guessing they use 4pin perpheral connectors right or most?

im looking at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835150006

Download RealTemp and check your temperatures with the side panel on and off. The best air cooling setups have air being sucked in from the front and expelled out the back. You want the "wind tunnel" effect.
