    Question:

    Why do you wish to have excessive cooling? Those parts don't need the extra flow... unless you live in the oven of the world.

    EDIT: Though one for the back, one for the front. Larger the fan the more air it can move. Should easily handle that.

    IIRC, none of my auxiliary fans are rated for more than ~2W; I also checked the specifications of the fans on a local shop just now. None of the sane-to-be-used-as-an-auxiliary-fans were more than 10W, with most in the <3W range.
    Thus, I doubt You should worry about "burdening" Your PSU with a fan or two. (If Your PSU would not be able to cope with a couple of more fans, You should seriously get a better PSU either way.)

    Remeber the flow of air is more important than the amount of air being moved. Also your computer will only ever get as cool as the temperature of the air in your room. So if it gets that hot in your room, you may want to invest in some air cooling for yourself first, and that will sort your computer out.
