Maybe a simple CPU temp question (i5 750) :-p
Just wondering, which temperature should I take as the "real" CPU temperature.
Using Everest I see a Motherboard Temp, CPU temp, then the CPU Core temps... So the question I have is, which one (CPU) should I keep an eye on? Should I download another temp monitoring program?

if you look in BIOS you should see the real-time temp, but of course depends on the BIOS software

If that ambient temp is correct, you should be able to get it down to room temperature, with, better case ventilation. Unless it really is 115f in your house.
That alone will lower everything else.
Although, motherboard @109f doesn't add up as well as the CPU temps. For that matter, How can 115F or 109f air cool a processor to 84f 81f, or 99f ?.

I have 1 Front Fan as intake, Side Fan blowing out and Back Fan blowing out...
Should I change the side fan to blow into the motherboard?

We'll be seeing those temps pretty soon.
I'd have the side fan blowing in, you want positive pressure, inside the case.
The higher the pressure on any gas/air heat transfer system, the better it works.
They have even proven it with computer case cooling.
Before you do anything, get a window fan , and place it beside your computer, with the side removed.
With the fan blowing into the case, check your temps.
This will represent the best temps you could get, by adding fans.
If the temps go down, before adding fans, usually just cutting out, or changing fan grills is enough.
If any of your fan guards are the kind with the little holes, it can be drastically improved by changing to this kind.
92mm Fan Grilles*at SVC.com
First do the fan test to see where you are, I bet it will give you insight to those numbers also.
Do a check with and without the side off, and make sure you include room temp with the other temps, so you are comparing apples to apples.
