    But on a more serious note look at this http://www.newegg.com/app/Showimage.asp. You could mount a fan with a couple of crude brackets to the back of the case independant of the u cover and get some decent air flow with a 80mm blowing on your hsf without a lot of costs. Or for $26 us + s&h you could buy this case http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...ry=1470&DEPA=1

    I opted for the case.

    Beefy, I use an AOpen H600A case, and the cooling is so good in it, that apart from winning two design awards :D, my CPU load temps are higher with the side off than with it on! If you want to check it out.....

    Hmm, I have an Idea. On the front of my case I have an 8cm fan just like you, however I have room for another fan or possibly a larger fan but no holes to accomodate. If I drill a few small holes from inside out I can make room to add another fan or replace the existing one with a larger one. the holes cannot be seen from outside because of the front bezel. That would take care of the intake cooler air. I dont know about the rear of your case but mine has little room. However if you draw a percise pattern and drill holes from the outside inward you would have an outlet. you might be able to add another smaller fan or something. In theory, because you are now forcing more air into the case the pressure inside the case is greater and by just making more holes in the back you should be able to force more hot air out even without adding another rear fan. Just a thought and since it is not me with the problem it is an idea I will easily share. Let me warn you though, my ideas arent always the best and never work the first time around. good luck.
