Default whats the best way

to lower the temp on the motherboard?
on everest, theres a temperature for the motherboard. I am guessing its the chipset.
i have two heatsinks on my mobo, one fore the northbridge (790X) and one for the southbridge(SB600).
do i cool one of them to lower the mobo temp?
if so, which one?
or do i have to cool both?
i dont want to get some aftermarket heatsinks for them, so i am only thinking of putting some AS5 there later on, and i will get the AS5 when i get a new cooler for my GPU and CPU.
also, will puting an 80mm fan behind the mobo help cool it down? because my case has a slot on the of the side of the mobo where i can put a fan
Layout of my mobo

the one above the pci-e slot is the chipset. I am thinking of putting a small fan with and tape it on. but will it lower the motherboard temp?
thanks in advance

EDIT - and where can i get some dust fulters to stop dust from going into my computer?
i got 7 case fans.
