    You may be able to put a fan at the rear of the case and posibly another at the front, for cooling your harware. :grinthumb

    It may take the temps down from 1-10c. Maybe more :slurp:

    I know you are on a budget but if you are looking to cool with fans there is actually a case that would do the job. http://www.jeantech.com/apollo.htm is the place, it can hold up to 7 fans, and it is quite cheap. I got mine for about £60 and also has temperature information on the case. Just an idea :) Worth a look if you are thinking of changing your case.
