Hve you considered installing a Pc cooling device/system like pc vent or a pc aircon? They do a pretty good job.

Up to what temperature does your cpu "heat up" to exactly? how many exhasust/cooling fans do you have installed?

Processor zone heats up to about 65-70 celcious and system zone 2 to about 70 celcious.I had installed two extra fans but saw no difference at all.

It only heats up that much when i play games on run softwares that use up lot of processing power.

I ran into this problem, too. Maybe your CPU isn't making contact with the heat sink anymore (the CPU could be warped). I put a silicon cooling compound between the CPU and heat sink, and I never had the problem again. I'm forgetting the name of the product, but it comes as a paste in a small tube. You can get it from Radio Shack.
