i have a DO stepping i7, i didnt know those were first gen? anyway my idle temps at stock are around 37c but i think what is making my room heat up so much is my GTX 580, i put my hand up to the exhaust and it was easy 90 degrees farenheit

We have a "first gen i7" irregardless of the stepping (D0) just because the i7-9xx were the first of their breed.

My cold boot idles are around 34c average and load temps with IBT on max stress top out at 71 on the hottest core in a 24c room.

Your high load temps are 100% contributed to your room ambients.

I also have two 580s and at idle they are not really all that hot. But when cranking the room does get a bit hotter. That's why I got a tower fan which oscillates to blow the heat all over the room.

34c? i guess that would be about normal with 1.28 vcore in 25c room, lucky you. anyway i put a housefan blowing on my chassis and temps went down to around 36c, normal? I plan to get an A/C unit next week, ill post back idle temps and an 8 hour prime session

36c is much better. Although idle temps don't necessarily mean something is wrong.

There's a plethora of things that could be going on while you think your CPU is "idle". So these temps aren't always significant in telling a true story.

It's all about the load temps, which are severely impacted by the ambient temperature in the room. Drop the room temperature and you will see a decent drop in CPU temp, probably almost linear compared to the temperature drop in the room.

An average idle delta of 7C is not bad at all. Many heatsinks don't perform that well.
