For a overclock to 3.5ghz on a i7 930 the cm v8 is a great cooler so u would not be needing liqued cooling

And the safe temps for your CPU on load should no be more than 72c under prime 95 that is

72.x is the max tcase temp, from Intel.
If you can avoid it, I like to keep the cores out of the 80's.
