Need more evidence?
I walk back and forth five times each morning checking if I've locked the door.
Key press on a keyboard doesn't sound right? I hit it till it sounds right to me.
Now is that MR or OCD?

Dont feed them they will crawl back into their hole eventually.

I have a i7 920(basically the same thing as yours, just not server part) that has been running for almost two years non stop folding 24/7. It is running at 4Ghz at around 1.25v+ and is sitting in a room with lots of other computers folding 24/7. It gets very hot in the room and runs anywhere from 80-95C on any given day. I'd say it averages around 88C and has been this way for the better part of two years. The max on the 920 for core temps is 100C before it starts to throttle down. I had a instance where the door had been left shut in that room one day before work. With the door shut it gets unbelievably hot. When I got home, over 8 hours later, it was showing 99-101C and throttling up and down to keep from frying it. It has shown no damage since then, which was 8 months ago or more. These chips can take a ton of abuse apparently, at least mine has. I wouldn't worry too much. Not saying it can't hurt them eventually, but not until way higher temps and for a lot longer duration than most here would recommend keeping a CPU running at.

I would try to keep it below 85 at max, but even then, if it is anything like mine, it will not instantly degrade or burn it up if you do go past that for short term.

Nice knowing, but it can't be good keeping it at those temps for long. I cannot let this rig 'expire' before 2015; and hopefully it lasts past 2015 to become my next spare/bedroom rig.

This is why people don't believe I have OCD/understand what OCD is.
To them it is too odd for them to wrap their heads around it.

I believe the CPU should be just fine, and browsing through the responses it seems people agree. But why would you put it on a "Suicide" run if you don't want it dying? lol

The chips can generally take some abuse. All the chips are made different, just because one guys chip can run at 90+ degrees 24/7 for 2 years doesnt mean we should all start doing that. I can guarantee you A LOT of chips would die under that heat/load. I had a 920 not even last a year at 4ghz/1.28v/75 max temp. If your chip has any flaws, and you push it to its limit, its going to break.

If I wear you I would play it safe and invest in a QUALITY heat sink. One of the best and expensive ones. Start searching on craigslist, if their is not one up that is good enough just wait.

Was just trying to see what absurd temps I'd get at 4GHz, and it turned out to be absolutely absurd. Not gonna try again anytime soon.
It didn't even complete one loop of IBT when it hit 99.

I am aware that W3520s run a certain bit hotter than regular 920s, but I bought a Xeon for the 'reliability', since it's a binned chip after all.
And it was my luck that the computer store I bought it at had a screwup, and priced the Xeon $30 lower than its 920 D0 brethren.

I have a H50, obviously something is wrong with it.
The rubber grommets have split, but I'm using metal washers on top of it, and I have it locked down fairly tight.
Not sure if it'll go any tighter - the screws can still turn but I do possess quite a large reserve of physical strength and I am afraid of busting a screw.
Did that once on an AVC Z9H741K heatsink - busted the screw and half of it got stuck in the backplate rendering the cooler absolutely useless.
I used an X-spread of TIM on the core, and all my temps are pretty even; we're talking within 1 degrees C of each core, so I guess my mounting is not to be faulted.

For airflow, I employed a single 120x25, 3000RPM AVC DS12025B12H fan which moves a maximum of 150CFM. The pressure is pretty strong as well - it has no problem pulling a ton of air out of the case (I have it set on the radiator as exhaust; because intake would just screw up my airflow).

My only issue here is that the air coming out of the rad is warm.
Uncomfortably warm for a computer, but it does feel like what an air-conditioner set to heater mode would put out.
Not laptop-vent hot, and definitely not kettle-hot; but it is still quite warm.
Should I be alarmed that the air isn't totally hot (meaning that there isn't a perfect transfer of heat) or is this to be expected from using a single thin rad, weak-ass pump and only one 120x25 fan as opposed to two 120x25s in P/P or even a single 120x38?
