Default Decisions, decisions...

What should I do fellas?

Keep my rig the way it is or...dump the Koolance Liquid Cooling System and replace it with a high quality heatsink?

Next...should I replace the ASUS board with my old DFI? I am not sure if I want SLI or not though? My DFI doesnt support it, while the ASUS one does...

Any thoughts?

go with my plan, because SLI is pretty much not worth it right now (except with two 8800gt's or two 9600gt's)

if your looking for an upgrade on videocard, get a HD 3870x2 or a 8800GTS 512mb, no need for a dual PCI-Express motherboard there and still awesome performance.

And why do you want to change your cooling system? Is it not performing as good no more or something?
