Anyways, I digress. Are your case fans intake or exhaust? Can they be upgraded to 120mm fans? I recommend having a one-for-one fan setup; Have one intake fan for every exhaust fan. I have 3 intake fans and 3 exhaust fans on my case. All are 120mm and I don't see temps anywhere near yours. My room can get up to 80F, even with the window and fan on. My back fan and two top fans are exhausts, then my front, bottom, and side panel fans are intakes.
Most of my hardwares are old (12/27/2008) except the case and its fans. AFAIK, fans in the rear blow out warm/hot air. I think the front has vents to bring in cool air? See my case brand and model on http://www.antec.com/product.php?id=2376&fid=5 (two exhaust fans).
