stir the air around and get moving air around the drives, the memory and the video card.
You can go to cyberguys or computergeeks and find a variety of fans/coolers for specific purposes.
It almost always helps to andd a fan. Draw air in from the front and out the rear. Add a top blow hole beats them all. See Robert Proffitt's link to the blow hole.
To do a temp profile inside the case go to Radio Shack and get their Indoor / outdoor thermometers. The one that the outdoor is a sensor on a long wire. You can snake this throuh cracks in the case to measure the temperature at various locations inside the case, with the cover on properly to get valid reasons. Less than $20.
