"Dead spot" as i call it is on top near front, its not in air path from both front (that is mostly sucked by noctua) and gpu.

Other spots tested rise temperatures much more, like right after noctua, and near gpu, but those quickly drop after the load is reduced, indicating its blow by the intake air.

Just to add how bad things are here today: my car was reporting 41C ambient temperature while i was going to office. Street termometers were reporting 37-38C. Its just insanely hot.
Cases almost always have some hotter areas, but as long as airflow from intake to coolers and over components is cool enough to keep everything important cool don't worry about area above motherboard, in front upper corner of case etc. Where on Earth are you located? That is super hot!
