Bottom of the Front of the case. Kinda below where the two fans are. You can't really see it in the pictures, but its on that bottom "lip" on the front of the case behind the front panel door.

I would replace the fan and not use the switch. When you buy a lower priced case you get lower priced fans and fan switches.
Why put the switches on the case if it could damage something? If I did get new fans would they just always be on then?

There could be something shorting, anything is possible with electronics if everything isn't 100% perfect. I would have to agree with Bear's suggestion, two new fans wired directly to the motherboard. They would be on all the time but they'd be controlled by the motherboard and would ramp up and down as and when needed. It's a much better method.

If I were to install new fans controlled by the motherboard is that something i'd have to set up or would it be automatic in controlling the fans?

Are we also saying this is what the next step has to be to prevent the BSOD's or is there still more info that needs to be looked at?

It would be automatic, once they're connected to the motherboard headers. I'd take that as the next as it seems directly linked. We'll talk you through it if you need help.

In the meantime then until I can get new fans. What should I do to keep the computer cool if I should avoid using the front case fans? I've never had a problem with what feels like excessive heat, but some of the games I play can get the computer a little warm.

How can I check the temperatures on the fly?

You can use Speccy linked in my signature, there's also MSI Afterburner to monitor your GPU temps. These can be minimised to tray for quick temperature reference.
