Yesterday I put together a system for my girlfriend because she wanted a faster computer. Today I was finishing installing and configuring the system, she started playing the new SIMS2 game. I noticed that the case was kind of hot to the touch so I checked the temp in the bios setup and the readings were above 120°F MB and 138°CPU I can't recall right now. After she stopped playing and the system was idling the readings fell quite a bit.
*** I need to go back to her house to get the readings again ****

Anyways are the temps too high, what could I do to drop the temps down?
BTW My system does not run that hot
