The big guy (My principal PC) has 11 fans and run hot at 109 F
The mac runs hotter then the PC. My main heat source is a monitor (A Barco). All the other monitors are Mitsubishi (4) and they cool in comparison

11 fans! ...I would love to see a picture of the inside!

Clare - I'm thinking of installing a PCI card will be mounted right below the AGP video card, so hopefully it will pull some of the heat from that.

I remember when I used to frequent the overclockers NGs, that they used to leave the cases open and use a desktop fan blowing directly onto the CPU and graphics card. (Would certainly prevent dust buildup )

But of course, you could always go for liquid cooling...

fast machines run too hot and are never shipped with enough fans. Used a program that clocked the temps, too hot, so took off cover and used a desk fan, big difference.
