Default Fan Setup?

Right now I have 3 fans, and then the 2 fans from the power supply. I have one fan blowing into the case - right to my heatsink (Zalman CNPS9500 LED), then the heatsink blows out of the back, and there I also have another fan to blow the air out of the case. My problem is that my temps I think are ok, but my cpu has a hard time cooling down when I first turn on the PC. I turn it on then the Intel logo is there for like 3-5 minutes, before with my old cpu fan, it took a few seconds. I was wondering if there is a better setup I can make with my fans so that I get plenty of cool air into the case?

Here are some pics:

thats set up right

i see no problems
the heat issue is probly because of either your ambient temp or you just have a very hot cpu

boot into bios and see what the CPU temp actually is . You might see if your case can take another intake fan in the front . Id see if you can work all the wires so that there not blocking airflow.
