Default which direst shoul;d pan be for nb and south bridge?

I noticed that my evga 680i mother is pretty warm and so I am thinking of putting a couple of small fans on the north and south bridges in hopes it will cool it down a little, the thing is that I am not sure if the fans should be blowing onto or sucking the heat away from.

right, blow on the heatsinks.

when i did that the NB temps dropped at least 10C, and it's now the coolest thing in my pc - used to be the hottest, except for the GTX 280 of course.

I'd say get 2 if you can and manage a push/pull. I did that with an old corsair ram fan a while back before I water cooled the NB on my old DFI.

A lot of DFI boards have tower heatsinks on the chipset, so push/pull with a 40-60mm fan is definitely possible.
