Mobo:

Abit NF7 or NF7-S (more expensive, but better on-board sound, firewire and SATA)

Cooler:
I prefer Thermalright. SK-7 with an 80mm fan is a good tradeoff between price, cooling effectiveness and noise.

You need to tell us more - like what you use this computer for, do you live in a hot climate, is noise an issue, do you play games, how much you are happy to spend...

I agree with pcy, that's pretty good!

other wise you can use A7N8X-E Deluxe(the one I have), it works pretty fine.
As a vent I have a Ajigo 3200+ (it's pretty good, I oc my 2800 to 3200 and the temps are good).

I suggest a Nforce2 chipset motherboard from asus, abit, tyan and other reputable manufacturers.

The specific motherboard for you depends on your needs/likes. Would you use a SATA drive? gigabit LAN? onboard video? onboard modem? onboard NIC? ATA-100 or ATA-133? type of memory supported? maximum memory supported? RAID support? overclocking features? WOL? number of expansion slots? IEEE 1394 support? number of usb ports? form factor of board? support that comes with the motherboard? and a lot more List the things you need/want then look for a motherboard that suits your needs.

For cooling, I give that part to the overclockers here in the forum...I use the excellent heatsink/fan that comes with the retail version of the processor
