    ???

    There's usually one sensor beneath the CPU in the middle of the socket and one somewhere else on the board that monitors the 'system' temp at that one point.

    Is that what you mean?

    Are you overclocking? The motherboard itself dosen't really need cooling, rather the components on it that generate heat.

    The most important thing really is to get cool air from outside the case flowing through the case. I.e drawn in by a fan on the front for the case and blown out of an exhaust fan at the rear or by the PSU fan.
