A 60mm undervolted fan above the NB should help things, but 60°C isn't that bad.

Have you tried cleaning up the TIM and reseating the heatsinks with some good thermal paste? Strapping a fan onto the northbridge sink is also a good idea.

the fan/s on your rad should be an out, becuase currently its picking up hot air and putting it into the case. Its best to have equal pressure in the case, so 2 out and 2 in. in a front to back flow is best. If you want to get more technical, find the CFM ratings for the fans and have the intake CFMs match out CFMs, and if it can't be equal, have more in than out.
