Put in more soffit vents?

The two mushroom vents, and the two gable vents, on the north side of the house are letting hot air out on a hot day .

No hot air coming out of the mushroom vent on the south part of the roof. Maybe because the south part of the roof is a foot or two lower, at its peak, than the north's peak.

I'm thinking of adding attic venting of some kind under the eave on the SE corner of our house.

Not much real estate to work with. Maybe we could put a 2 inch wide by 8 foot long vent in location "A" or "B".

- And/Or -

The soffit on the SW corner of the house is very wide, so we could add several more soffit vents there.
