That really won't do much, plus you'll likely make things worse.

A fan in the back will interrupt the right->left airflow the case is
designed for.  You'll be sucking intake air out the back of the case
before it has been able to pass over the hot stuff.

The only viable solution is more input or more output the way its
designed to move air.
