Roller Coaster Tycoon, I used to play that game.

Fans are all you should need really, and paste.

The square is the pre-fitted paste that comes on the heatsink. I don't think thats a pad, yet, I don't know how they work...

u have no exhaust fans and from what i can see no intake fans either thats a big problem u need to get soem ASAP and u probably wont need to replace the heatsink on the cpu and on the motherboard just take them off and replace the crappy paste with artic silver paste then u should see a big improvement

Man, you got to get 2x80mm fans installed on the back of that case. That CPU cooling is pretty creative but I have no clue how effective that may be. You don't need that little fan underneath that hard drive because you already got that vent/fan deal in the drive bay. Buy an exhaust blower for the lower half of the case. Does your side panel have another fan? Get that panel on afterwards and put that to good use. Then measure the temp again.

Here's what I got for fan specs. I've done some rearranging myself so I actually use less fans. Maybe you can use similar setup?

One fan/heatsink for Northbridge
One side panel fan
Two rear exhaust fans
Two front fans
Stock CPU fan/heatsink
One exhaust blower

Temp right now at 7:53 pm:
CPU @ 32 degrees Celsius
GPU @ 53 degrees Celsius (OC'd)
Ambient @ 46 degrees Celsius

Sorry to get in this so late but I've been a bit busy.
First of all I would use a pair of wire cutters and cut out the flaps on the back fan holes and mount up 2 80mm fans blowing out of the case. Next take out the fans you have above and below the hard drives. You're not really doing anything there and it's adding vibration on the drives. Next chexk the front air intakes to see if they have those same flaps and cut them out. It's not really needed to install front fans as long as the air can get in through them. Last close up the case. The side open is killing the air flow. All the rest of what you have is not getting any air cirulated over it.
Antec led fans are 8 dollars US a piece. Some other brands without leds are cheaper. But you seriously need to do something and pretty quickly.
