I think my CPU is getting some decent cooling (still on stock HSF, will switch it this weekend). I have the TriCool sucking in air at the front, and instead of putting the Thermaltake PCI slot cooler by the GPU, i put it on the side of the hard drive cage, so it moves the air thats getting pulled in, to the CPU and GPU area. I like the layout of this mobo, you dont have to have fans spread out all over the place.
The layout actually gave me a few headaches because my case has a bottom mounted PSU. That little 4pin power connector is pretty damned far away from the bottom of my case.

I managed though.
