First post here, but go ahead and add me to the club.
New build for me, see description below. Just wanted to get a few clarifications as far as temperatures and voltages are concerned. Main items are i7-930 D0 @ 3.73Ghz, x58 FTW3, H70 push/pull as rear intake, 6GB Corsair @ 1700mhz. Running LinX pack ( ~10min shown in screenshot) and Prime95 (~3 hour test), I have seen maximum temperatures of 76/72/73/70. Ambient @ 26 deg. I believe I heard temperatures of 85 for the cores were acceptable for 24/7 use and processor longevity, is this correct? The VREG has gotten into the high 60s during testing, is this safe and what is the maximum 24/7 temperature?
Are these core temps inline with the H70 and i7-930 around this 3.73Ghz OC or do I need to reseat it? Didn't want to overtighten the bracket, worried about bent pins. I plan on going to GT AP-15s when they get back in stock to cut down on the noise and gutting one of the stock corsair fans with the H70 to use as an intake shroud. Any other configuration recommendations? Also, I'll need to post an updated picture as the cable management has vastly improved.
