Get more case fans!

Also, maybe add a Volcano 11 to your CPU? (Although they make your computer sound like "an F-22.")

Thats not at all what I asked for.

What type of case do you have?
What is the fan layout in the case? Meaning- where are they, what size, in or out.
What heatsink/fan combo do you have on your processor right now?

*sigh*

If youre unwilling to find out, we cant/wont help you. People cant help you if you wont help yourself.

If you want help thru the internet (as in, WE CANT SEE YOUR PC) youre gonna have to be able to provide information. Dont ask questions about something you dont even know about in the first place.

If you happen to decide to educate yourself on the matter, stop back by and let us know, til then good luck with a hot PC.

Case fans don't really help CPU Cooling.

Just get a better CPU fan, or go all out and buy a water cooling kit, your CPU temp will drop like nothing =p

Case fans do help the airflow, If properly installed they can lower cpu temps, however I don't think that overclocking you cpu will help you tho...
you need to throw away your graphics card and buy a new one!
