Check out the Nibbler Club link in my sig. It's a great tool for easily removing mesh grills to increase airflow. Your high ambient temps are a notable part of the problem. You also have two GPUs that tend to run hot and one (cyclone) dumps all it's hot air into the case. Some of that air gets cycled up to the CPU heatsink which doesn't help either. Are your top fans intake or exhaust? Do you have a side fan at all?
sorry for the nibbler part..i have gone through before..it tools to cut the fan grill more cheap compared to dremel..the fan configuration on my case is:
1x artic F12 at front bottom INTAKE
1x Silent CM at the hdd cage INTAKE
1x CM blademaster at the 5.25 drive bays INTAKE
1x Side fan INTAKE
1x Artic f12 EXAUST
Hyper 212+ with 2x Artic F12 in P/P configuration..
