    I would definitely try to get an aftermarket cooler or better cooling for your graphics.
    Actually, seems like you could use some better air flow in general imo.

    Dude that's terrible. You need to fix that train wreck of wires there o_O

    Also, your CPU cooler is blowing into the power supply... it should be blowing out the back of the case where those 2x80mm are

    Adjust the angle of the CPU cooler's exhaust if possible. Blow into the exhaust fans. And up the default minimum and maximum fan speed on your GPU.

    Do you have a program to raise the speed of your graphics card fan.
    Thats the only thing running hot.
    But yes please do something with your wires.
    Try bundling the ones up you dont use and tie them and stuff them up above your dvd drive.

    Use coretemp for CPU and ATI catalyst to check card temp.

    it they are the same clean youre CPU&GPU coolers.

    AND better cable management.

    Take all the extra wires you arent using and shove them above the DVD drive. see if getting some of that spaghetti out of the way drops temps a couple degrees. I fyou need more room, drop the drive another bay and keep packing wires;)

    It looks to me that your fans are running fine and doing what they are suppose to, if you look at the min and max speeds; they are being controlled.

    You might want to check the TIM and see if those coolers is seating properly on the cpu and gpu. And check those wires down by the GPU fan and make sure they are not touching the fan on the card and impeding it's spin, as the GPU temp is to high.

    And, cannot really tell in that pic, but clean out any dust bunnies...
    :)

    Edit: Did you check the temps with the side panel on or off?
    Just wondering, 'cause the panel maybe pushing the wires into the GPU fan.

    Either increase the fan speed or get a new cooler if rearranging the wires and stuff don't drop the temps any.
    I think once you get the clutter outta your case, temps should drop a tid bit. If need be, put another fan around it
    or on the back of it. May help.

    Definitely fix those cables, no wonder its so hot.

    Also i would change the fan around so the fan is facing the front.

    You can keep the side panel off and just rest the 120 on the case and have it rest up against the top of the card
    and have it blow more air on the card. It could help. Or you could place it in front of the card, behind the hdd
    cage. That is about all I could recommend doing with that.

    Let's see:

    GPU is way too hot.
    HDDs are hotter than normal.
    CPU is hot but that's explainable, CPU fan for some reason is running at variable speed, probably controlled by the MB, if so, disable this, the CPU fan should always be running 100% speed.

    I'm puzzled as to why you can't change the direction of the HSF. The freezer pro uses intel's standard push pins for mounting if i'm not mistaken, so it should be able to mount in either direction. It's not like the AMD boards where the retention bracket only allows mounting in one direction.

    But I'll tell you what your biggest problem is: your case. You could solve a lot of problems if you switched to a case with a bottom mounted PSU and top exhaust fan, and preferably a decent sized side panel fan to help cool the GPU. With that even if you can't change the direction of your heatsink, it's still blowing the hot air outside the case.

    Either the HAF or the Antec 900 or 1200 are both good cases. I'm kind of partial to the 900. :D

    CM690 or Haf are good cases.
