I just build a computer this last winter and the temps have been average up until now. its starting to warm up outside and the room that my computer is in gets unusually hot. its not even 80 degrees (Fahrenheit)outside and my cpu and gpu are getting up to the 60's(celcius) during gaming. during the summer itll get to be around 115(fahrenhiet) outside and i dont even want to think about how hot my computer is going to get. right now i just have a stock heatsink on my phenom II x4 and the stock cooler on my sapphire 5770. i have my computer in an open place where theres plenty of airflow, but the air outside is so hot it doesnt do much. is there any way i can bring cooler air into the case? or just cool it better?

add some fans [ depending on your case ]

and put an aftermarket cpu cooler on it

Get a Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus and some lube. I found out vs the stock hsf you'll see a 4-6 c drop in temps. And beyond that add as much 200mm and 120mm fans as you can. Add a second 120mm to the cooler master as well.
