I installed a Archon on my 2600k. Right now Im running it at stock speeds. What sort of temps should I be seeing?

Depends on what your ambient/room temperatures are, no one can tell you what temps you should be getting without that.

Just overclock it and see if the temps get better

Just kidding, but yeah, sounds like too much TIM or a improper seat of HSF. I'd suggest taking it off, cleaning it, and reapplying just a THIN line of TIM and reseating your cooler brahbrah.

Well one thing I just noticed was I had Asus's TPU and EPU switches on the mobo turned on. I think my cpu may have been running at 4.4ghz. But only sometimes? I cant tell what the thing is running at as cpuz shows the core speed as constantly fluctuating. Core voltage also fluctuates. Is this normal?

Ok, I turned the tpu and epu off. Looked around about fluctuating core clocks, it appears it might be load-line calibration. So when I run prime95 voltage and clock now hover around 1.168v and 3.512g. Now highest core temp is 55. But I havent run prime95 for long. How long does prime have to run before temps max out?

Yep. So now it seems to be running at stock speed, 3.5g, max temp 55c. This is without 1 side panel on though, got to put that back.

Put a cheap digital cooking thermometer on the desk and let it register.

Same here.

Sit's a bit off to the side of my monitor so that the temp of the screen won't affect it much.

Those temps are a bit high for a stock CPU. I think you need to check your case airflow or try torquing down the heatsink a bit more. If those two things fail then I would say reseat the heatsink with fresh paste.
