Looking at your motherboard temp, it seems to be awfully warm. Some extra cooling fans will definitely help there.

To give you an example, my ambient room temp right now is 20C and my motherboard temp is reading 21C (I also have four case fans for case cooling), and I'm essentially idling. When you get some case fans, that temperature will definitely drop, and so will your CPU temp.
Yep gpu's get hot and cpu cooler is pulling it's hot air onto it
Pretty much shows there's no fan on the front of the case either for an intake also to cool hdd's ..?

Cable management is the reason for it not staying cool. The first time I built a computer I did the exact same mistake but once I dragged the cables behind the motherboard plate inside the case temperatures dropped, and it also looks cooler if you have it nice and tidy in there..

Here is a tip for everyone out there. I see you have red sata cables. If they are the generic type without locking tabs I would replace them with better cables with locking connectors unless you want data errors, missing hard drives and general issues. I speak from experience that generic sata cables without locking tabs eventually suffer from all kinds of connection issues.
Amazon.com: (5 x Sata 3 Data Cable) SATA III (SATA 3) cable black (40cm) with Locking Latch straight to Right Angle 90 Degree | compatible up to S-ATA/600 | Serial ATA | 1,5GBs/3GBs/6GBs (backward compatible) | S-ATA Cable l Compatible with Sata I an
or similar is what you want for less issues.

Laith,
For sure you need to flip the PSU so the fan is pulling case air and exhausting out the back right away, this will act as a case fan. Then add a front and rear case fan ASAP. Your SSD can also mount in the back if the case has a space for cable management with Velcro and you may be able to open up one of the drive cages and cable manage for much better air flow.New PC-hpim2616.jpg

Your temperatures are too high IMO even though you do have a high ambient of 30C. You need a couple more fans particularly a rear exhaust fan. I have my PCs on carpet but I raise them by putting some under the feet eg. a couple of pieces of timber (2-3cm) wide enough so the PC sits securely but not restricting any fan under the PSU.
