965P-DS4 Silent-Pipe cooling

Last response: in Overclocking

First of my rig:
Case: Thermaltake Tower
Mobo: Gigabyte 965P-DS4
CPU: E6600
CPU Cooler: Scythe Ninja Rev 2
Ram: OCZ 2x1Gb PC-6400
GFX: Geforce 8800 GTS
No Overclocking done yet

Basically my issue is that Silent-Pipe heat sinks on the DS4 aren't getting any air flow and so running quite HOT! (i think:??: )
When I convert a DVD for iTunes using Handbrake Speed Fan registers Temp 1 & 2, which I am presuming are the temps for the North & South bridge (anyone know how I can find out for sure) are running between 52-58c.

The Ninja is cooling the CPU fine, but no air is getting to the board to cool the North/South Bridge heat sinks, so does anyone know of a decent CPU cooler that can get some air flowing around the CPU for the Silent-Pipe heatsinks? Or is there a WC alternative, although I know nothing about WC?

Once I have this sortted I will start overclocking it. I have high hopes of getting the E6600 to about 3.2Ghz.

Well, WCooling, done right, will cost you several hundred dollars initially, especially if you want to include wcooling your GPU as well as your CPU - then, you are talking numbers approaching $300 or more depending on your desire.
