    Open the side up and slap a house fan in there. Will allow dust in, but if you don't mind it'll work. Also take a can of compressed air and blow out all the dust, especially out of your power supply. It loves to hang out in there. Besides that, make sure your fans are cranked up to max RPM's if they're adjustable or buy bigger versions if you can with more efficient air flow.

    A lot of the newer cases have the capability to support 2 case fans. That oughtta do it. Also, make sure your case is in a well-ventilated area, not closed up in a desk.
