Core i7 975- Running too hot?

Hi, I have a Core i7 975 Extreme. Running stock speed, with liquid cooling. If I do nothing but sit here and play one computer game (World of Warcraft), the temps average 50*-55*C or higher sometimes.

I know they run hot, but that is pretty extreme for having liquid cooling it seems?

  1. Have you ran any benchmarks, i.e. Intel Burn Test, Prime 95, etc...? If not, do so and we can give you better information.
  2. I ran World of Warcraft, MSN Messenger, and Prime 95 Stress Test simultaneously for about 5 minutes but didn't get a chance to record anything because temps ran over 80* and were going up and I shut it off.
