Stick an old heatsink off of an old video card/chipset on there if you can figure a way to mount it (doesn't have to be on superhard, just enough to draw some heat away) and it will help a lot.

so you may want to start reading.

tell you what Ill keep reading and you start to think a bit.

If there IS space between the motherboard and the case side (i.e. motherboard tray) it wont be much, so he would need a slimmer fan. If not, he would stillw ant to cut a hole in the side for the air to escape, and why woudl you want somethign sticking really far out of the side of the case. I would say that the less obtrusive the mod is, the better.
