Hello.
Iv'e recently bought some new pc components such as a new motherboard and video card.
I had put them into a small pc case which dosent have a fan at the back because the wire dosent reach up to the motherboards fan connector.
It kinda gets really warm inside so I keep one side of the case upen for the cold air to go in and i was just wondering how i could solve this issue.

Thanks.

You can replace the fan with one with a longer connector, or with one that connects directly to the PSU by molex (I recommend the second)

i would use the molex option but the only thing is im not sure if theres a SATA version of this as all of my 4pin connectors are used for my graphics card and the cd rom

In that case buying a 3 pin fan extender, or a fan with a longer cable would be good too.
