Thread Starter 
I have the i7-6700k coming and I have the XIGMATEK Gaia SD1283 on my system in push/pull config I also have the Venomous X on my wife's pc an i7-920. As the i7-6700 is going into my system should I switch the Ven-x with the Gaia?

The 920 is around 59c at 100% 35c idle. I only have one fan on the 920.

At a guess the temps will be much higher if you change coolers .. 78c instead of 58c.
I would try the Gala on 6700k. My guess is it will be fine.
