If you have a 120mm fan hole check out the following product.

ECO A.L.C.

I have it in my system with a 965.

It idles @ 30C
Full load is ~37C
This is with a system temp of 27C
wooh thats really good temps for my cpu to run at and is good how much did the cooler cost?
$75

That includes the 120mm fan the system uses to cool the radiator. (Its not an el-cheapo fan either)

i may move to water cooling later on in the year when i have more money to spend on upgrading my PC but i think i will try 1 of the before mentioned air cooling 1s for now as i hope this should stay cool enough while gaming

I can understand the price issue.
This was my last cooler.

I just wanted to know what everyone elses temps are like and what cooling you use as i am tempted to return this CPU and go back to an intel CPU.
is cool and quiet turned on?

in general the wire management is ok, but you can do some better hiding for those wires, especially the 2 sata cables (1st thing i saw)

As kurahk7 said it isn't too bad with the wires, but every little bit helps. Stuffing the unused or any excess inot an unused drive bay helps.

Would also help to replace the two missing slot covers. I would also look at replacing that 80 mm fan in the back with a 92 mm (looks like that is what it will take) with the highest airflow (CFM) and lowest noise (db) you can find.Also from your listed specs,

Cooling AMD Stock Heatsink, 120mm Blue Front fan, 2x80mm exhaust fan

where is the second 80 mm? One reason for mentioning replacing the 80 mm with a bigger fan is that with a 120 mm in the front and an 80 mm in the back, you have more air going in than going out, allowing the air to heat up more before it is expelled.

One more thing, the power supply. Is there a fan on the top of it (as it is installed) at the top of the case, or only one at each end of it? If there is one at the top, turn the power supply the other way around so that fan is facing down, will help with drawing extra heat out.

the 2nd 80mm fan is a side exsuast 1 and the psu only has a fan at the back i'll be covering the to expansion bays soon and will try to hide the cables better and i have an artic cooler pro rev 2 coming in the morning.

Turn that 80 on the side to intake. It doesn't help much when it is pulling air from the front before it even has a chance to pass the CPU and video card. General rule for case fans is; front and sides, in; back and top, out.
