Probably you have no worries below 60 degrees. If you want to add fans, your usual airflow is ENTER LOW at the front, and EXIT HIGH at the rear.

- Keep cables neat and tidy to let the air flow through.
- If you have a drive connected that you never use, remove it.
- Be sure you know where the air enters the case at the front. If there is a carpet that blocks it, set the computer case up an inch or two so it can "breathe".

As a last resort, run it with a side panel removed. This might reduce the heat by 10º. But it is a bad idea, because it lets a lot of dust get in. If you have to do it, though, it works; and you can put a 10" plastic fan right beside the case to keep it cool. Just be warned that this is not recommended at all - it is just something you can do if you have to. (Er - if you don't have a cat.)

As the processor heats up (towards it's MAX operating temp) random issues will become evident, freezes, lockups or BSODs are not uncommon, personally that fan speed is WAY too low, have you considered some type of aftermarket heatsink/fan upgrade OR even just a fan replacement?

Cleaning the excess build up of dust (dust bunnies) out of the interior of a case will yield benefits too! even the heatsink/fan combo collects dust buildups... some spring cleaning could be in order eh?

I have previously run at 58-59 degress at one point when my fan was causing problems. Removing the side panel and locating the PC in a cooler area can help cool it down it by 4-5 degress.
