You're blazing white hot,anyone ever tell you that? Sometimes i think you have fingers faster then Superman when it comes to posts on WBB forums.
Hot in terms of both speed and... well new hotness- Stash
I work in the 6-10rep range (which is best for building muscle right?) and do 2-3 sets.
I don't think your overtraining. Might want to take out some bicep/tricep excercises and get deadlifts in on your back or leg day.

I would simplify and choose better exercises.
I don't see the point in doing BB bench press and DB bench press in the same work out. Same goes for Lat pull down in front and back. What I would recommend is doing one or the other and next work out i would switch it up. Also remember your tris/bis get worked when you do chest and back so i would drop one of those lifts for each muscle. Lastly i would do SLDL or lunges instead of leg curls, and i would drop leg ext also and do leg press or something of that nature. Otherwise the set up looks good.
i agree with what everyone else said, but i wanted to add that if your over training you would know it. stick with the routine (maybe change some of the exercises like some people said) for a week or so and that will help you to decide if you are over training or not.
Don't do wide grip pulldowns. It's a myth they work your back better and they can wreck your shoulders.
