i was checking the other day and noticed that the area maked in red was very hot to the touch...do u think i should get some air moving across this area...i run at 2vcore and 172 fsb...i know this causes heat in this area but with air cooling i was moving alot of air around

Shouldn't be necessary as there's only a few caps and coils there, but if it makes you feel better, do it;)

The area you point out is part of the voltage regulator for the CPU. The parts getting hot will be the FETs (Three legged black lumps) soldered on the board.

The torroids and mosfets run hot. Heatsinks on the mosfets can help get the heat out of the case. My Iwill DP400 came with serious heatsinks on the mosfets. Take a look at the thermal imaging here.
