i would strongly suggest you do the following;

install a more powerful fan on the side inlet provided you dont have a fan on the front of the casing. The fan should be at least 100 cfm fan considering all the other fans that you have.

install another fan of 90 cfm in the rear exhaust slot closest to the psu...i am guessing you can achieve a 10°C temp drop using this method...unfortunately my FAQ aint out yet otherwise i will direct you to it for better information

and try to find out what the other fan cfms are..
