I have a extra Mac os/8 sitting around and am wondering if I can add the fan from it to my HP pc to add extra cooling?

Sure, no problem. What's the extra mac you have?

Also, if it's an older Mac, you might want to consider that the fan will have a lot of hours on it and might not be up to the task of cooling a modern computer.

the mac that i have is a os/800 i think it is about 3 years old and i am not using it anymore so i figured i would yank some of the usefull parts out of it and see what i can do about possibly cooling my system a little more before i start overclocking it....i am just starting out with overclocking so i am not gonna do any major changes as of yet but any info on the fan hook-ups would be great....as in where should i put it in my HP and where should i do the connections of the wires(can i just jump them into my existing fan wires) or do i have to get any special hook ups
