First of all please fill in your system specs in your user cp. This way we might be able to get a idea what's wrong.

Looking at your case i can see nothing that would justify those high temps, You have enough fans and the gpu is dual slot. Could you take a look in your bios settings what temp is listed for the cpu in the hardware monitor tab please?

I will be buying this case pretty soon

or if you have any other case you can think of better and cheaper then let me know...maybe i'll buy one right away if it's cheaper than the one I mentioned. And those are not stock fans by the way. They are these fans

Your load temp is at 55? That is a pretty decent number for the stock cooler, probably won't improve on that to much. Phenom II's are rated up to 63C load i believe (safe temp to run according to AMD specs), although it is generally better to have them below 60 at least, or 55 for best case load scenario.

than it is prob reading right but I still personally prefer individual core temps rather than just one with the highest temp since my last core runs much hotter than the others

Are the two fans on the sidepanel set to exhaust? Looks like it in the vid.
