i do have a fan attached to the cpu! there is also the basic thermal paste that comes with a P4... would it be worth taking this off and putting on some better stuff?? also, would it be worth my while buying another fan to attach to the case? there are 2 spaces left for the on the back of the case, and there is already an out-take fan on the side as well as the fans on the PSU... and by the way... yes i am a very poor speller!!

Don't worry, nobody is prefect.

You got some very good ideas there. You could change the basic thermal paste to the already mentioned A(rctic)S(ilver)5, and definitely add some more fans.
