How would I go about adding extra fans to me Dual-Core powermac G5?

I do not see any extra molex wire hanging around in my case and I am curious is to how I would add fans.

(I want to put a fan on my video card and add some glowing fans for cool effect and extra blow)

I see no massive issue with a fan on the GPU card, but you might find that adding case fans screws up the 'airflow zones' inside the case. You might be better off trying to replace the fans that are already there if possible.

If you insist on adding fans, you could use those cheesy molex doublers and triplers.

I try to avoid the molex Y cables and fan adapters. I would splice into the main power source say from the hard drive, just splice it into the molex connector going to the drive. That way you only have two wires to deal with instead of trying to stuff a adapter in.
