There is a fan filter on the front of the case? Remove it.
After reading what you found I think your GPU temps are right where they should be. You can adjust the idle fan speeds in ilde and load using Rivatuner. I think at idle it's set at 40% speed, bump it to 60%.
Honestly, try and run it under load. Use OCCT for the CPU and Furmark for the GPU. Let us know what you get.
Maybe you need better case fans. Cutting the fan hole metal parts out of the front and back of the case would help as well as better fans.
*edit* actually, now that i look at it, that cpu temp is high considering you arent overclocking, those are overclocking temps. they are within acceptable range... but dont leave you room to overclock.
Get a better CPU cooler, temps aren't bad but not great. It's just about where it should be with the stock cooler now we saw load temps. Your GPU fan is only at 29% at idle, bump it up to 40% or so in idle.
Replace your case fans, cut the back fan thing off with all the tiny holes, remove front filter, cut the tiny holes like the back.
Not much else you can do beside a new CPU and GPU aftermarket cooler, and open up the case air flow.

18c ? Thats like somewhere around 64F ? Wow!, I'd hate to have to pay your electric bill. LOL
Well errorloading, Time I saw the picture of your case I knew what I'd do to it.
Remove the lower HDD carriage blocking your front intake fan, move your HDDs up into the 5 1/2" drive bay, you really don't need but one DVDRW anyway, get some 70+ CFM 120mm Cooling fans and get some serious airflow through that bad boy
and you'll see an immediate difference.
Your graphics card will have fresh ambient airflow directly to it and it will run cooler, you said (no fan in the cover), assuming you mean the 250mm fan, didn't it come with the case or was it extra?
Edit; You were already advised to remove the front filter and I second that suggestion.
Most of us are in and out of our cases so much dust removal is a way of life, you do not really need a intake filter anyway it just additionally restricts airflow.
