I have the cooler master elite 311

  • The air vent in the front provides superior ventilation
  • Multi-color front panel for individual preferences
  • Supports long graphics cards including AMD HD5970 (*Need to removed the HDD cage when installing a graphics card in the 4th slot and below)
  • Supports an optional 120mm fan on the side panel to cool the graphics cards
  • The 120mm fan in the rear helps to keep the constant cooling
  • Bottom-mounted PSU placement and removable HDD cage for improved cable management

You can buy fan to put behind in order to oust the warm air and also one fan to put on side cover to blow direct to CPU.I don`t other components you have but it is possible this PSU not to be enough.

So put one fan infront to draw in air.Corsair are good one,but may be it is weak.

I'm not sure what temperature Speccy is picking up as "motherboard" temp but it's not going to be overall case temperature.  Could be the VRM possibly.  Could you download HWMonitor and post a screenshot from it.  I think it might pick up more sensors than Speccy does.  The CPU temperature while gaming of 60 degrees is not bad, considering it appears to using the bundled cooler which is poor.  If you want to improve CPU temps, upgrade the cooler.  Almost any aftermarket cooler will be better than the one bundled with the CPU, and the case accommodates coolers up to 160mm tall according to the spec sheet.

 

Improving the routing of your wiring may also help airflow (try to see if it's possible to route some of it under the motherboard tray - that's what the oval holes cut into the tray are for), as will installing a 120mm intake fan in the front of the case.
