Your temps look OK but they could be better. What's the room temp?

The air is supposed to flow in thru the front & out thru the back. Side fans muck up that airflow pattern. Try unplugging the side fan & see how that affects your temperature readings.

BTW, where are you getting the readings from - software or the BIOS? The BIOS *should* be more accurate. If you're using software, compare those readings to the BIOS readings.

room temp around 75 F
i use software to see temps, and I also looked at bios. Both of them showing same temperature. While playing games, when i touch back of the case its really hot (around power supply area). When AC is not on, my computer acts like heater. What can I do about it?
Thank you
