I just read your other post and see you don't have a radiator. If you use one you could drop temps some. I am useing a transmisson cooler I bought from O'Rileys Auto parts for $21.00. I have a 12mm fan I got from grainger for $15.00. Radio Shack has them for about the same. I used an extra case to mount every thing. Here is a pic.

just an idea but wouldn't it work better if you had the fan on the outside? then you would have airconditioning for your case and you would have colder air because the outside air has to be cooler
