Id have to know the exact type of case were talking about since pentium IIIs were put in LOTS of different cases depending on the type. Is the PSU mounted over the top of the CPU or above it? how big is it? does it have mounting brackets? If not, you can custom make them-remove ALL components in the system, find a spot on the front or rear of the system, and the type of fan you want to install, drill holes at the apropriate spot, and mount a fan that way, and clean out all the metal shavings and rebuild the system. Also, if the PSU DOES NOT mount directly over the CPU heatsink, this is a trick I have used, take the side panel and cut a hole in it and mount a 120 mm fan over the CPU heatsink. If the PSU does sit right above the CPU, BUY A NEW COMPUTER case, because short of water cooling it is very very difficult to cool modern computers in a setup like that. If you know what your doing and have lots of extra money, invest in liquid cooling, if not get on newegg and buy a 20 dollar case and some fans for it is my recomendation. but if your dead set on using this, and the PSU does not sit above the heatsink, post a picture showing both the interior and exterior of your case and I can recomend good places to mount a fan.
