    Move to the UK perhaps? Our summer has been non-existant this year, so no cooling probs here!

    But seriously, you might want to drop the AMD, they do run hot. Or, get the biggest heatsink you can. The bigger the heatsink, the easier it will be for the fan to cool it. Copper is more efficient than aluminum, but more expensive.

    Water cooling maybe?

    At one of the computer shows I have seen a guy selling water cooling kits. Comes with radiators, pumps, pipes, everything. Right around $200.
