PC components don't "fry" unless something really bad happens like a blow capacitor or PSU. They do wear out from electromigration which is increased by heat. However, your temps aren't extreme so I wouldn't worry too much.

As for the memory fans.... just check Corsair, CoolIt, and OCZ.
Once again...

Yes, but more precisely it seems like they're listing the optimal voltage as a range rather than specific value. DDR2 spec's default a 1.8v voltage but many high end modules require voltage between 2.0 and 2.5v.

frx: the crucial.com ballistix memory I have use has a manufacturer specified voltage of 2.25v. Typically your BIOS is going to default to the DDR2 spec and only provide 1.8v which can cause system-instability by undervolting the memory. :shrug:
