If you have more exhaust fans than intake then this creates a negative pressure and you will inadvertantly be sucking in non filtered air from the cracks in the case - bad! But to increase airflow in your case you could look at adding another 120mm as an exhaust. You want the air to go in the front and leave the back and/or top. This will improve air flow through the case.
But on another note: Your voltages look perhaps a bit high for a 4.0 ghz overclock on that chip. Anyone correct me if I'm wrong, but certainly a 960 can do 4.0 ghz on not more than 1.3x Vcore?? Maybe look at fine tuning those voltages.
yes that seems really high. Try these below with LLC disabled. I am running a single 1900 rpm scythe slip stream fan on a prolimatech megahalems and its not bad. When gaming my max temp is like 56-57 degrees and when folding 63-64 degrees.
