Default Which slot to use? [Asus Sabertooth x79]

Hello!
I have Asus Sabertooth x79 and Asus Xonar Essence STX PCI-E audio cards.
What will the best place on Asus Sabertooth X79 to put GeForce 790 (will take 2 slots) and audio card? Which slots will be cooling better - closer to CPU or to PSU? I have SilverStone TJ-10 case and BeQuiet! PSU with fan facing down,
and Noctua 120mm cooler.

The GeForce card you must install it in the PCI Express slot that offers the highest bandwidth, and that will be the one closest to the CPU.

The audio card you can install in any available PCI Express slot, at your convenience.
