Hi i am using a program to monitor my systems temperatures and it tells me fan1 is running at 3342 RPM and fan2 is running at 0 RPM. I was just wondering if anyone knew if an advent 3419 has 2 fans? if not is it able to have a second fan to help low the temperatures. The average temperatures i get are 50C but can reach 62C i am told this can be to hot and i should do something about it.

Any help would be great thanks.

anything any the 60's makes me a little worried, getting to close to threshholds.

You can always take a peek in the case, 0 rpm could mean the fan died, or it doesnt have a rpm sense wire, or its just no there.  

You can always add a fan, just look on mobo for a 3 pin connector thats labeled fan2.

Never seen an adavent but most cases have a spot in rear and or front for a 120mm and maybe two addtional spots for your standard 80mm.

also if there are no fan headers free most fans come with a adapter for a standard 4 pin power connector.

They typically come with one fan, but a second can be added with little difficulty.  Pull the two screws in the back, slide the side off, and you should see the mount points.

it depends on the cpu model, look here for their max temps :

as said, you can add fans. the best way for cooling is to have the front fan blow the air into the PC, while another in the back sucks it out.
You can also cool your northbridge , if needed :   http://www.dvhardware.net/review61_SwiftechMCX159.html

If you can't find the 4 pin to 2(3) pin power adapters, you can just swap out the fans with ones that use the standard 4 pin connector (the kind that plugs into your hard drive and cd drive).

you can buy all kinds of power adaptors everywhere, from 3 pin to 4 pin and others.
But in most cases, they simply are the 4-pin type, which you can connect directly to the Power supply

I am thinking of getting the Antec P180 case, fitted with 3 fans and an ASUS A8N motherboard, will i need to buy adaptors or will the board be able to power these fans without any extra parts? Or will i need an Antect  PSU.

Uhhh, if the case comes without a power supply, you'll need one.  (sorry, read that again just as I hit Submit on the other one)
