High Ambient temps need help!

My room easily hits 25*C all through the summer, I would like to add some more fans to my case to hopefully lower my temps.

My specs are

Q6600 @ 2.4Ghz cooled with Tuniq Tower 120

8800GTS Stock cooler

MSI P6N SLI Platinum

2GB corsair XMS2 PC6400

OCZ 600W Game Xtreme

Gigabyte 3D aurora case




ATM I have 1 120mm intake fan at the front, 2 120mm exhausts at the back and my PSU also exhausts air from the case. I was thinking of putting some fans on the side panel mesh window to suck the hot air out from beneath the GFX card and another above the GFX card to ram air onto the motherboard and into the CPU fan. is this going to help? what else would you suggest? are there any cheap ways to reduce ambient temperatures? (cant afford air con)

Thanks to everyone who replies :bounce:

Oh my Q6600 is idling at 46*C on the hottest core and will hit 60 under load in TAT.

Sounds like you need to remount your Tuniq and clean and reapply the thermal paste.

Ok thanks, this has made me completely lose confidence in the shop that I payed to fit this, seems like they didnt even do it right :( ....
