Inside your Dell do you also have case fans or is it just the CPU, and power supply fan. I know that at work here, P4 2.8 Ghz Optiplex Dells, they took a step back in time by putting a small dinky fan on the cpu and a heat tube to the back of the case to "direct the heat" out of the case.
I would try to see if you can put a couple of case fans in, one near the front of the case, say behind the harddrive, might be a spot molded in, and one in the back, if not there already. Have the front one suck air in, feel for the air movement inside the case, and the back one blowing out. Makes the cp a little noisier, but does come in handy for those hot summer days.....

I check out different cp sites, including ones in the US, but due to duty and exchange rates, :mad: I have to keep my business in Canada. Do your research on parts, check with chat rooms, but DO find a place where you can buy the item in person, where you can see it, touch it, smell it, taste it, fondle the hardware card......uuhhhh sorry, got carried away.

for a couple of reasons, first, if you have one sucking in air in the front of your case, it will help to cool down the harddrives and CD-ROMs, second, one in the back pulling air out of the case will help to create a flow of air that is passing over your (see First) Motherboard helping to cool it down. Third, there is not really too much difference in FPM (feet per minute) volume between a 120 cm and couple of 80 cm fan.
little crappy ones
You will probably get better performance by running a couple of fans instead of one large one. You will also have to take into account a cp is really working when you are playing any game, this includes Solitare.
For a test, open Task Manager, Processes tab - click on View - Show Kernel Times, let this run, start a game, this is a test, so no powerplay is needed, run a game for 2-3 min, close the game and see how much your cp is working. You will be close to capping out at 100%, think of how warm your cp will be after an hour.
