take a look at my idea for a ducting mod... a big duct on the opposite side from the window on the case to pull air away from the motherboard. would this help temperatures at all?

I doubt taking any air from back there is going to help anything... If you want to do something on that side your best bet is to cut the mobo tray right behind the CPU socket, and attach a fan blowing right on it.

Thats kind of a big duct, are you building a heating system for your house? Only kidding, you never know until you try it. I would make it smaller, and have a fan pulling the heat away. In the center of the hole or duct.

refrigerant baby. If you want to go extreme, go this route. I've never done it before, but I know a guy that modified a water block with a P4 a 2.8ghz and got over a thousand mhz. fsb. Thats a little crazy for me, I've had my sempron at 2.4 on coolant in another computer case but it kept crashing. I don't know the possibilitys are endless.
