You need to very your positions of flexion as well, press downs with your elbows at your sides, presses to get your elbows in front of your chest, and extensions overhead. The more POF, the better your developement.

cable monster sets to failure at the end of all tricep days
CGBP, tate press, skull crusher, and incline french press
also keep changing angles to isolate different parts of the tricep.

I like doing close grip bench the way Jim Cordova describes: http://www.jimcordova.com/videos/videos.php?id=26
actually all of his advice for most lifts are great, he focuses a lot on the "feel" aspect of the muscle which I think is often overlooked when trying to move maximal weight. You can start off heavy then drop the weight and try to incorporate this method

For long head: overhead tricep extension
For lateral head: close grip bench (keep elbows close to body, don't let them flare out)
For medial head: dips, or push downs with elbows as far back as possible.

Lately I've been starting off with CGBP the trisetting overhead cable ext./OH cable ext/UH cable ext... Burns like hell and I've seen some great results with it. Probably not worth doing, it's just fun lol

sets 1 2 and 3 have a 4010 tempo (with the negative being 4 seconds) and set 4 has a 20X0 tempo. With no breaks between each set, talk about pain! But its effective.

Incline triceps extension with bands are sick for pumps.
For mass....good ole close grip bench, heavy dips, and push downs get my vote.

Best For Building Triceps: Dips
Pushdowns might be your favorite triceps movement, but when was the last time you did dips? Since pushdowns are a single-joint exercise, they limit how much weight you can move. Dips, however, are a multijoint movement that involves the shoulders and elbows, meaning you can handle more weight (your bodyweight plus added plates as you advance) to build size.
I've also been loosely following ben pakulski's training ideas of hitting the muscle in a shortened and lengthened state, so it's more than just one single movement to build the muscle, get two long ropes and do rope extensions to apoint where your elbows get behind your back.....stuff like that

I'm a huge fan of dumbell skull crushers. Once you get the good form down pat, it's a great lift I always feel the next day
