this.
going any higher you'll want a better cooler.

also it's normal for your voltage to vary like what you see.
my 955 goes from 1.4-1.5v depending on load.

Im kinda surprised that a H100 doesnt get cooler than that really but theyre still ok. Youre not going to be running IBT very much so I would be fine with them.
Whats your NB voltage? You can try turning this down a little too. It can make a BIG difference in your temps.

My NB voltage is set to normal in the BIOS. I will play around a little bit with lowering it and see what happens.

also with all your menory slots full its going to make it harder to OC using FSB and you hit the limit of what most consider safe over voltage for the FX chip

What do you mean by this?

the FX chip its not good to get close to 1.5 esp on air as that its top limit and Id recomend making 1.45 your limit
