I finished building up my new computer a couple of days ago, and haven't encountered any problems yet. Everything seems to be working great.

Gigabyte GA-P35-DS4 Rev 2.1
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 (G0, 1.275 VID)
4GB Corsair XMS2 DHX Dual Channel DDR2 800
MSI NX8800 GT OC (660/1900)
Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 7

The core temps are ~23 deg C at idle (20 deg C surrounding temperature)
Crysis with all options set on "very high" and no AA plays at 20 - 30 FPS (1024x768)
COD4 with all options maxed out plays at 80 - 100 FPS (1024x768)
3dmark06 scores between 11,800 and 12,400 (not sure why it varies so much)

The above benchmarks are with the processor at stock speed, and the video card OC'd from the manufacturer which I haven't changed.

Right now I've got the processor OC'd to 3.2 GHz (356x9) and am running prime95, temperatures are stable at ~57 deg C. The idle temps increased to ~31 deg C with the overclock.

Does this all sound normal for my setup? I'd like to be sure that everything seems to be running up to speed before I get into overclocking (although I've already started to).
