Have you got good air flow and a lot of fans? Also, move the PCi cards down to the bottom holes (furthest away from the AGP slot).

More Case Fans would probably be the only answer to it.

Lol! That would do the job too I suppose - or water cooling it! Nah; the case fans are just little versions of the fan that your power supply has in it - they are stuck to the side of the case basically wherever you want and if there's a hole there then they cool the case. Theres that or opening the case all the time!
