Are you running a gamer's video card? If so, a couple of 12vdc muffin fans -- one in the front as the intake and one in the back as the outlet -- shouldn't tax a 400-watt power supply.

The CPU already has a fan on it. Make sure its tines are not blocked by dust.

If you run the box with the sides open the fans will have little effect. In that case, just put a 20" box fan next to the box.

The cooling fans do not take up a lot of power. U can add fans without upgrading the power supply.
