Yep, sounds good.

Why do you have to say anything to your mum though, her computer or not? Simply buy a 1 fan, or two that'll fit (80mm probably) and fit it yourself, by simply plugging it into a power suppy molex connector
She probably wouldn't even notice!

That would hopefully cool things down and you could then have the case on more. Without them, your computer becomes like a heatflask, where hot air can't escape, and so everything stays hot.

Hmm, that is pretty horrid

Can't they be delivered to where you are? Hehe, it'd only be a small package.

Or, you could go out on a massive camping trip to the computer store, and take a bike or something, with a tent in your bag

whoa those temps are crazy especially for the motherboard if u dont do somethin soon u might loose ur comp u need some much better cooling for ur cpu i suggest a zalman fan and u should deffinately put some artic silver on the motherboard chipset and think about getting a better fan for that, the hard drive seems ok but still a bit warm

Yeah, it is in danger, but I think he needs fans at the back too to force the hot air out. That might make a bit of difference, but yeah...somethings wrong about those temp readings.

Kewl, well tell us how it goes.

I'd get one or two fans for the back, where there are spaces, and if you can get a new CPU fan and heatsink, I would recommend that, and also, yes, like gaming_freak says, get more thermal compound (that will only be cheap too) and re-paste it on the heatsinks.
