I think it looks better and runs cooler. That's the way I have it in my rig.

That is not accurate. First, bent pens are not hard to fix with a little care. Second, you typically cannot RMA for bent pins so you are SOL in any case. I'll quote myself:

Bent Pins. Given all the complaints about bent pins over the years, I always check over Intel boards before I do anything and this was the first time I observed bent pins. There were a total of about 10 bent pins in three different areas. The package looked unopened so I am guessing it came this way from the factory. Luckily, if you look at the other pins you can see what normal pins look like (each pin is bent over itself) and with a flashlight, a small flathead screwdriver and some patience, I was able to fix the problem. However, this is simply inexcusable at this pricepoint.

OC temp
1) My I5 2500K processor is overclocked @ 4.5ghz, V: 1.3. I am getting around 33C on idle and 68C (with prime95) with my H100 cooler, ambient is around 24 - 26C. Is it normal???
MOBO mini Fan
2) How do you guys adjust the mini fan in your MOBO? 1 intake and 1 exhuast or???
Attaching case fan to MOBO
3) I am currently using a CM Storm Trooper case and right now i am attaching my bottom(1) and front(2) intake fan to the front panel. My H100 radiator fan(2) to the pump and i had change the fan to CM excalibur, rear exhuast is currently attached to the MOBO.
Question is, should i change the fan connection directly to the MOBO so that i can control the fan speed using Fan Xpert II because right now it seems like my fan is not running at their full potential.
Any other suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Thank you
Will post pic of my rig soon!!!

Anyone can help me with my question???

Definitely post some BIOS screen shots. I did a test run with similar settings on my 3770K using an H100 to cool. My temps spiked into the 90s C (ambient is ~78 F) almost immediately, so I stopped the test... Either I missed a setting, or the cooler isn't seated properly.

your Oc temp with a H100 and your current ambient look normal. Asus suggest Both mini fans as intake but that is subjective. As for fan rpm control try what hurtn suggested.

I believe we can't adjust the fan speed using Thermal radar.

Of course you can.
