I kind of prefer to have more exhaust fans that intake fans.
No ask around.

This sounds like the culprit. The ideal setup would be to have any fans at the front of the case or on the bottom of the case pushing air into the case and any fans at the back or top of the case pushing air out.

Might be time to purchase some better fans as well.

Is that fan at the back pulling air in? Because it should be set up as an exhaust fan.

You could also try and shove those cables somewhere out of the way, particularly that IDE cable.

Other than that, you might need to think about buying some new thermal paste and replacing your old stuff on your CPU cooler.
