You're temps are perfectly fine. If you are worried about dust, either use an air compressor or a can of pressurized air.

i dont think, how many fans do you have going in that are low to the ground?
that is where most of the dirt is.
so you could put it there and then have the other open freely
i say one is about one 80mm is about 6ins off the ground at the side of the case and another that is about 10 ins
also going to get a new fan for the front which will b a sliverstone
i think ill give it a try though ill look for some hepa filters around the house(u'd b surprised at what u found in my house and its neat)

Those "filters" will not stop dust from getting into your computer much at all. Also if you use filters, they highly restrict the airflow, and if they actually do catch dust, that will restrict the air enough that it overheats. Regular cleanings are the solution if you are in a dusty environment.
