    Thanks a bunch for you guys help. I put the side panel fan on intake and the cpu temp is now 41 at idle and 46 max(usually 45 max). Case stays in low 30's. Any other suggestions to cool it down some more? :) Would a blowhole in the top make a noticeable differnece?(2 or more degree drop?) Or should I add another exhaust fan underneath the one in the back?

    If your capable of installing an exaust fan on the top......do it. As that helps cool down your PSU you as well and get rid of the hottest airs that are just sitting up there at the top of the case.

    I can do it but i dont want to go through the effort(Dont have much spare time) if it's not gonna cool by more than 2 degrees, do you think it would help that much?

    I noticed the back of your case has an integral fan grill (holes punched in the metal) for the upper rear exhaust fan. If you Dremel that out and use a standard fan grill you *will* see better cooling.
