2011 Imac Cooling???

Ok... I bought the new 2011 27" with the i7
Here's what I got upgraded and put into this thing...
3tb hiTACHI HDD
OCZ Vertex3 SSD
Radeon HD 6990m
And I've optimized performance with tools like Onyx and what not...
Here's the problem...
THIS THING IS HOT!!!!!
Has anyone come up with any cooling solution?
Not controlling the fans but hardware??

When you say hot, we need to know temperatures and fan speeds. Download the free iStat Pro Widget and give us some readings. Here's the LINK.
Just for information sake..... your new iMac has three fans:
2. Hard Drive
3. Optical Drive
Right now for example, my 2011 iMac is showing 39 degrees C with a fan speed of 1200 RPM for the CPU.
