I was just curious what that green plastic thing is in the bottom picture. Is it some kind of brace or something? The reason I ask is because I took mine off just a few hours ago... I hope i didn't ruin anything.

hot air rises. Seeing how you flipped everything upside down, your ambient temperatures will rise, thus creating a rise in temperatures on every component. As i see that you dont have any exhaust fans, except for you psu, and i assume you have sort of air coming in. Your case has positive air pressure. All the hot air will stay trapped in your case and not enough will get out. Just my 0.02

that green thing is there to make the cd drives and hard drives easier to take out.

im thinking your heatsink isnt on properly if u saw that much of a difference, maybe when u flipped it over it seated it better? try taking it off, replacing the thermal paste then putting it back on tightly and flip that case back to the right way round
