Over Heating Issue?

Only until recently have I begin to notice a decrease in my computers performance, especially when occasionally doing some gaming, nothing graphically intensive just games like counter-strike 1.6.

I've noticed that my fps spikes drastically for a second or two and it happens about every 5 seconds. My computer can definitely handle the game, it always has until 2 days ago.

My Specs:

Intel i-5 2400
nvidia gtx 560
Windows 7 32 bit, 4gm ram.
Biostar H61MGC Motherboard
Cooler Master Elite 430 Case

I have 5 case fans set up, 2 top 1 rear exhaust. 1 front 1 side intake.

My GPU Temp tends to stay in the 40s Celsius, however my Cores tend to be in the 90s Celsius. I have all my fans setup properly I beleive, the only reason I can think of is that maybe my case is too cluttered with wires and I need a bigger case.

Any suggestions as to what the problem may be, does it sound like an overheating issue? If so is buying a new case my only option?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Your processor is over heating, you most likely installed the cooler incorrectly.
