i dont know about other systems, but i was just running some tests one of mine... xp3000, 500wat psu, 6600gt.

temp of the room = 65F, 18c
with case fans... \case temp = 28c \cpu temp = 35c, max load 44c
without case fans... \case temp = 38c \cpu temp = 45c, max load 54c

so in my system, case fans make a big difference. it may do the same in yours. if its just overheating, you can take off the side pannel and jus blow a fan tward it to test.

Have you tried booting up in Safe Mode, at all?

It should be blowing out of the case.

not true... its system dependent.

example - i have 4 case fans in the above example. drilled 2 holes on the side pannel, 1 over cpu and 1 over gpu... i have both of those blowing in.. so i put 2 fans on the back blowing out for a steady balence.

if you only have 1 case fan total.. and if your PSU fan blows out, you should have the case fan blowing in.... if your PSU fan blows in, the case fan should blow out. I dont think anyones psu fan blows in though.

Your wrong, you always want more out than in. You want to suck and not push.
