Default How to better Cool my pc??

I have 4 case fans. I have a cpu idle on a p4 3.2 prescot of 41 when its 85+f in my house and a cpu temp idle of 33 when its 70f or below in my room. I really dont think these are bad for prescot.... and that 41c only goes up to 48c max so i dont think thats sooo bad.
The problem isnt really heat on my pc its just that my house (computer room mostly) is way too hot in the summer... I have no way to cool it because window AC units dont work in any of my windows since my dad wanted to make fancy useless windows when he built this 100 degrees dump lol. I dont know how to make it cool. I open the windows... it gets hotter. I use house fans... it doesnt help.What can I do to help my rooms temp...
With the summer temps supposed to be in the 90s im scrued. I need some input. THANKS, CheeseJr

Pull the side of your computer and leave it off..

buy a small Window style airconditioner for your computer room. Should only cost about 100 bucks.

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=3757370
and this site has them around $300
http://www.brilliantstore.com/air/po...nditioners.htm
and these types are easy to install with only a 3" hole cut in the wall...the fan mounts inside and the cooler stays outside. a moron can put these in.
18000btu will cool 1000 square foot area without too much trouble.
