I just added an 80mm fan to the top of my (generic) case, by cutting a hole with a dremel, and inserting a chrome fan plate, with the fan below that. It dropped my idle temps from 35C to 29C. (I haven't tried load yet.) The only problem is, this fan alone makes my PC more that twice as loud as it used to be - and I already used orthodontic rubber bands on the screws to dampen the vibrations. Is there any reason why it's so much louder?
