If you have an apple lap top I can help usually it's located in or on top of the mother board on an apple lap top you screw off the back plate and you'll see it.

I have five fans in my computer. One is mounted on the processor heat sink. One is mounted on an auxiliary heat sink for some controller on the main board One is mounted on the video card One is mounted inside the power supply and One is mounted in the rear of the computer case, about half way up to the area where the power supply is located..I suppose that's the one you're talking about. It's full tower case.

1. there are fans in ALL power supplies for PC's (in laptops its negligable) 2. older processors have one mounted on them 3.newer graphics cards (namely Asus and Nvidia) have fans on them 4. the rear panel under your power supply may have fans attached.(common on gaming computers) 5. special cases may have decoraive fans mounted on the front (usually at the bottom) or on the sides.

There are two. One in the power supply, and one on the CPU that generally has a heat sink attached. Hope I helped!
