Budget? But the noctua nh-d14, corsair h series, antec 620/920, cooler master v8 gt, thermaltake frio overclock, and many many more :)  But considering you have a great case temps will be great on your gpu.

Dude, 45'C~46'C is insane. I'll rather recommend a Corsair H60/H70 or an Antec Kuhlër 920 or something in this case. Both are maintenance-free, closed loop water cooling systems that work well, and they're not too expensive.

zalman coolers also are great air coolers........

and weather it be air or liquid....both depend upon ambient air for cooling.....so unless you cool that room down your going to be warm no matter what!!!

good luck

Window a/c mod is the way to go, if your room allows for it :D  its really nothing special, some dryer duct, some duct tape, and thats pretty much it depending upon how much modding you want to do.

Like badtaylor said your cooling is limited by ambient air temps. Solution is to cool the air surrounding your pc case, or inject the cool air directly into the case.

edit. You also need a window a/c unit...

where the hell do you live?
i bought a 212 EVO a week ago because my stock fan couldn't keep the temps below 80C but the temp here in australia are around 30C
id buy the noctua D14 since its the best air cooler you can get
