Ah OK. Sheesh, the weather has been crazy in 100F degrees and makes my room about 90F degrees! For an example, with that PC. Even its Antec case plastic feels hot on its top:

Are my case fans not blowing hard enough from those RPM numbers? Note that these values are from mostly idled system with its monitor off and asleep from its power management).
