You don't need to spend a lot on this, a decent triple copper heatpipe CPU cooler can be bought for around 25 (that will be miles better than the stock one you have installed) and a case fan should cost you around 10.

I would surly install all the quality fans the case can handle.
I would also make sure all intake fans had filters.
Then just add a quality cpu cooler and you should have that heat problem you described.

Example:
My ambient room temp is 20C and the out side of my case is 22C.
A computer case should never feel hot.

Thank you Paul for the case website.

Enough for two more fans.

Thank you for giving this link.So does that means , i am good to go ??

And may be , my previous CPU placement down under the enclosed space in table might have cause the overheat..

OR shall i install 3 fans (As this CM link suggests that , 3 fans is the limit) ???

It wouldn't have helped where it was but there still isn't enough cooling in there to keep an i7 cool enough under load. Replace the CPU cooler and add more fans to the case.

Agreed, the CPU is a small part on the motherboard with it's own cooling but the PC itself also has to dissipate heat, probably much more than minimal cooling devices can handle. Gamers and Overclockers have to deal with high heat.

Just so you guys know , i installed this software i.e HWMoniter to have a look at my Core Temperatures & this is what it looks like (See the attached Picture # 1)


And i just installed a PORTABLE BIG FAN , which i used previously for my Gaming laptop ,it worked great and kept my laptop cooler, ( See Picture # 2 )

So, these temp's are after using this portable fan with/on my CASE ( The fan is placed a bit far i agree but the air is touching the case , i assure you ). I am not even playing any games while these Temp's are comming.It is just a live PC working Temp along with my portable fan running besides it...

Those temps (mid 30s) are fine. The pic shows temps maxed in the high 50s when you apparently were using about 80 watts under a load.

You could continue to use that big table fan if you want, but one simple exhaust fan that spun at maybe 1500 rpm would be a lot quieter, cheaper, and should cool just as well.
