My is an aspire x-infinity and my case temp is about 80 f when idle and about 92 when doin hardcore gamin. Only prob is that my graphics card divides the case in half and i get two different heat zones. above the card its about 76 but below it it's about 85-95 when gamin what should i do should i add another fan on the window blowing air to the bottom of the case? let me know

you should make a fan right below the videocard on the side panel. or take your side panel off when gaming.

If you have a fan on the top of your case that should definitely be exhaust, heat rises.

You need to have the duct go to just the top of the fan that rests on your heatsink so air will still move throughout the fins towards the bottom. Ducting is completely normal (no I wouldn't bother with the chipset) and yes the fans push air onto the heatsink, they do not pull air off. Yes you'd want the rear fan as intake.
