I suggest you add thermal compound to your proccesser which might be a little advanced but i suggest you add a cooler which fits in your 3 and a half inch bay and a pci slot fan at the back to keep a good air flow . The cooler can cost about 20 US you can buy it anywhere and the pci is like 3 dollars. go to www.coolermaster.com and look at the products. Also try not to put the computer too close to the wall or anything cause that builds up heat. Trust me.
