Older version xbox's [The ones with the GPU fan] can have cooling problems to begin with [belive me i live in australia and this thing gets real hot] so im installing a new 80mm fan into my 1.0 before summer hits. But if you live in a area whereit doesent get that hot then your xbox should be ok.
The outdoor temp has nothing to do with your hdd/mobo temp as it always less than the temp those parts will be. Even in extremely hot regions it might just differ just a little.
Additional cooling is not needed, vacuuming your room frequently might be a better option, so the fan won't get clogged by collected dust.
If you're really paranoid, you can adjust your fanspeed in most current dashboards. Doing so results in a shorter lifespan for your fan, so beware, don't go from 20% to 100%
