Those are all 12cm fans, except the CPU fans.

Basically, there's a lot of air going into and out of that box.
It still stays very toasty, tho ...

CPU1 Temp = 58.000 C degree
CPU2 Temp = 54.000 C degree
VRM1 Temp = 43.000 C degree
VRM2 Temp = 61.000 C degree
DDR Temp = 32.000 C degree
AGP Temp = 48.000 C degree

The DDR's have heat sinks on them, which is probably why they
are as cool as they are.  I don't know what a "VRM2" is or I'd
put something on it.
