The only way to lower the heat coming from your computer would be to down downclock your GPU and to a lesser extent your CPU, but you would notice the greatest gains from the GPU. Getting additional fans for your room is obviously going to increase airflow in your room and lower the temperatures too.

OR you could just downclock and use lower voltages, but as an OCN member, that's not your purpose.

Why don't you guys just buy a fan for your room to help cool down the area around your computer? Tower fans work well and don't take up much space.

I ordered one of these for my bedroom today:
