I found using a thermal paste on the cpu and gpu cause temperatures to drop significantly in mine. Splurge and spend the $5-10 on the best one you can find and it'll be worth it, noticed almost an average 8-10F temp drop in mine.

Clean off all the crappy paste MS uses and reapply your new one. Also you can mount a 10mm fan to the top of the CPU as I did, made a big difference but I've only been using a 10mm in the back so it was necessary for me.

And I highly recommend a MCPX heatsink as well for the slim box.

Peace.
