This is my case:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 2%2brc-532

These are my specs:
GA-P35-DS3L
E2140 stock HS/F
BFG 7900GTX OC
OCZ StealthXStream 600W
2 GB GeIL PC6400 CAS4
LiteON 20x DVD+R
WD Caviar 250GB SATA 3.0


QUESTION:
I was thinking about mounting another fan on the grill of the exhaust for the CPU. Just right inside the cone helping pull the hot air from the CPU out the case.

Will this work or help any? Also what size fan do you think I will need?

That "cone" is an inlet air guide for the CPU cooler, not an exhaust. What problem are you trying to solve? If its cooling the CPU, you would be better off replacing the stock Intel cooler with something like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... , its inexpensive, easy to install, and works much better than the Intel piece of crap. Make sure you use a good TIM, something like Arctic Silver 5 or a similar product. You haven't indicated what other cooling fans you have in your case, however a fan at the CPU inlet duct is of minimal value.
