No need for a new case. Those temperatures are good. If you get additional fans, it will probably lower, a few more degrees.

Yes, as mentioned, that isn't too bad. You might want to clean out the case, and take off the front panel and clear out the dust. Might also want to consider new fans.

You could take the heatsink off the CPU, and clean it and the CPU Heat shield, and put some new thermal paste on it... that did the trick for me when I had cooling issues in the SN25P.
