For the overheating, you can try setting all your fans to 100% and see if that helps. Most computer fan controls are designed for AC home/office environments so I've found that the fans won't ramp up properly for systems in an otherwise 'sauna' as you called it, lol. I've actually had one system die when the fan didn't ramp up, so now I always floor my high heat exposed systems and it keeps them cool.

If setting all the fans to 100% doesn't help, you might have more than just scratching from those capacitors and they may be preventing the cooler from mounting properly and I would change to another cooler.
That's a bit loud for me. I've ran my PC without the glass panel and it dropped by 5 degrees so arranging my airflow is my next move. If that doesn't help I'm reseating my cooler with Arctic MX-4 or kryonaut. And see from there if it helps. If it doesn't time to open another thread. Prime 95 under load ramps my CPU to 88-90 degrees in the first 10 seconds. Using HWINFO to monitor

You need better cooling then with better fans. Cool, cheap, quiet--pick two.

Keep in mind cooking your processor and system to the point it dies will also make the room quiet--quiet because your system will be dead.
