As a rule of thumb I always figured 60C was the highest you'd ever want to see.

Anyhow, I have some ideas to help his new rig run cooler. It'll mostly be a trial and error deal though. In his case there was room for 2 more 120mm fans in the top of the case, so I put a few in to blow hot air out. I think I might try using them as intake in the top of the case, including changing the fan for the cpu's rad as an intake.
