Hello guys,
           I have a single exhaust fan at the back of my case. When i play games my PC heats up alot in about 1 or 1 and 1/2 hour. Note that i dont use tempreature monitor cause im afraid it might do some harm to my mobo(Is that true??) But i touch it with my hands and it is pretty hot!!!

    There is another slot at the back to fix a 80mm fan in my case and i am planning to fix one. Should i use the fan as intake fan or a exhaust fan??

     Note that my case is pretty crowded and also i am a pretty average user who does not know the intricate details!!!!;)

     My specs:
     Intel P4 1.7Ghz Processor
     256 MB PC2700 DDR RAM
     64 MB Graphics card
     40GB Hard Drive

Well the fans in the back should be exhaust meaning blow the air out. Fans placed in the front bring in the air and you exhaust it out the back.
Open your case and use some canned air to blow out the dust bunnies also blow out the PSU fan as dust can cause overheating.

I dont have a place to fix a fan at the front and there is no fan at the front of the case and hence the i asked the above question.

  So if i have 2 exhaust fans at the back, all air will be sucked out and no air flow into the case. I want to know wat will happen if i have a exhaust fan at the back and nearby there is an intake fan.

  Please tell me which option is better?

  Also someone pls tell me if softwares like motherboard monitor do any harm to the mobo.

I've never heard of any kind of motherboard monitors doing any harm to your motherboard. Download a monitoring program and find out the temperature at idle (0%) and then at full load (100%). Post back here and I'll tell you if the temperatures are ok or not.

Check out the "Test Software" thread on the forum. You should find something there.
