I was messing around with my old computer when i noticed my 1.5 foot, around 23 cm(i think, i dont feel like doing real math) for you metric people, fan sitting next to my pc. So putting 2 and 2 together i opened up the side of my pc case and blew that air in there. It cooled my case from 112*F to 58*F. Is there anything bad that could happen rather than more dust from doing this?

No, I had an old computer running like that for awhile and It was fine...

BTW: that shows how bad the airflow was in that case.

Yeah it has one 80mm fan in the back and thats it.

Is there anyway to get the case temp even cooler?
