Default cooling issues

I have a lsight issue with cooling. In my thermaltake xaser III i just disonnected the fan controller as the cables in my case was so mesy it was unreal. Although i think my cpu has gone up a couple of degrees or it could be this room.. does feel a bit hot.

Im at 44 browsing web and ram is 30 id like to be in the 30's, got seven fans running as the usual is with this case so what do u think and how can i get it cooler.

cooling 101

bigger case, better airflow. More space, better airflow. Equal intake and exhaust, better airflow. No dust, better airflow.

better airflow = cooler system

more air flow across the span of the tower and that to which creates the heat i.e. cpu, psu, and HDs

A quick question about water cooling. How much is a decent kit these days as i may just take that route to get better performance.
