But why would you want that fan up front to be an exhaust? It doesn't look like the front of your case has any venting, so the air would just be blown up against that front cover and then going back around the case (if I'm correct on this). It would seem somewhat pointless, to me.

You need more exhaust.

I see vent holes in the second picture. You can try to mount an intake fan in there. I have two fans acting as intake there too, but I have openings from the case to help it bring in cooler outside air. In your case, it may just circulate the air inside the PC.

You can add a hard drive cooler if you wish. All your temp seem to be fine. I would try to bring the CPU temp down if possible. Perhaps a better aftermarket heatsink/fan combo. There's no room in the back to add another exhaust fan?

When running exhaust and intake, it's better to have an even amount of each. I have two intake from front, one side fan as an intake too, two rear case exhaust, and a system blower in the middle (PCI slot). My CPU's at 30 degrees Celsius as of this moment.
