1. I've OC'd my i7 930 to 3.8 GHz (200 x 19). My (applicable) system specs:

GA-x58a-UD3R Mobo
Antec 300 case
2 x Antec TriCool fan (back and top of case)
Prolimatech Megahalems CPU cooler with 1 Akasa Viper fan
1 Yate Loon D12SM-12 side fan
HIS Radeon 5830 Turbo

Just wanted to check if my temps are OK: ~40°C Idle, ~74°C 100% Load (Prime95). Seems a little warm to me (I'm going to try re-applying the TIM).

2. Although I've set my vcore to 1.200v (through BIOS), cpu-z displays vcore as 1.184v, even at full load. Is this OK?

Thanks very much!

Excellent overclock and good temps! Better than mine! :)  I would only put the yate loon fan at the megahalems and put the viper at the side panel because I think the Yate loon has better CFM and pressure, but Im not sure, please check the specs of both and tell us the difference.
