The airflow in my case is great. I have two strong 120mm fans pushing on my cards from the side, and one pushing on them from the end. I've also tried it with the door off, and the difference is negligible.

Do you guys think that if I change my door fans to exhaust that would help pull the heat away more quickly and thus reduce temps?

your airflow is not optimal. if you have one intake in the front you gotta have an exhaust on the back.

if you have one intake on the bottom you gotta have an exhaust on the top. I would not reccomend door fans.

I understand the airflow of my case quite well. I've experimented with many fan arrangements and many different numbers of fans. With my limited options, this is by far the best fan arrangment. I know how I'm "supposed" to arrange my fans, I should have channels of air and a general flow from front to back and bottom to top. I tried that, and it obviously didn't work. So through much trial and error, I have reached the optimal airflow for my hardware setup.

Unfortunately, you don't have any space between the cards for them to be more heat efficient. Those PCIE slots are close.. You would definitely get better temps if you had 2 blower style gpu's. So like you have said, that's probably as good as those temps will get until you reapply thermal paste. Maybe drop a few more degrees..
