I was debating what section to put this (cooling or here) but anyways. I think my psu has become the greatest contributer of heat in my system.

right now i have a antec 300w powering my dually. My power lines are right on mark or above. 5.00 and 12.10. I'm wondering if I buy say a antec 350 or 400w if it will produce less heat.

If the PSU is working fine dont replace it...

'If it aint broke, dont fix it'

Just work on your cooling for your case, dont forget heat rises, so the heat from the PSU shouldnt affect the case that much... get an exhaust fan on the top of the case, or another if you already have one, and that should do the trick...
