You might be better using an appropriate extension cable rather than cutting the existing cable.

^ Agree fan cables are not expensive boogieboy also splicing/extending must be insulated correctly ... its a lot easier to just buy them

Heat of course rises so to not interfere with convection I would do as suggested and intake air from the side fan and exhaust out the high mounted rear fan. I would also suggest running these fans wide open to get as much flow into this case. You could also knock out a opening in the front of the case maybe where an additional optical drive would go and just drill out the plastic in a open mesh pattern and get more air coming from the front. This case sounds like a less than ideal case for sure. You can also try using a Antec spot fan and that will help get air to the HDD and over the mobo and CPU.

Hey i do the Soldering stuff so it's nothing to worry about... i can repair the printing on the GPU/Mobo boards, replace capicitors/conductors and everything and fan is just a little work besides thank for the help everyone and it's just a everyday PC that is used for documentations and he does'nt do any gaming/OC'ing stuff so there's not much issue of heating up. It's been running from last 4 years like that.

Direction of Case Fans
I have an 80 mm fan on my heatsink that is directly below the 80 mm fan on the side of the case. The side fan is sending airflow out of the case. If I install a 120 mm fan in the rear of the case, should it draw air out of the case or into the case? Or should I reconfigure a different way?
