Hey there...

I just finished building this setup:

i7 920 with stock cooler and no overclocking.
Gigabyte UD3R
OCZ Platinum CL 7, 6GB DDR3

Wanted to be shure everything is running right, and google about some testing methods, because im a noob at this.
Found Intel Burn Test & Real Temp...

With IBT - The test went fine at standart and high (Highest temp = 76), but with very high and maximun it said critical error and i should check the air. I saw in BIOS it was set to give me a warning when temps got up to 80, maybe thats why its mistaking to test the higher stress levels?

With Real Temp - I ran the 10 min sensor test where it uses prime and this was my result:

Is it okay? Or is something wrong?
Should i test with more things?

I just ran it on my i7-920 overclocked to 4.03 ghz, with a CM Hyper 212+ cooler, and my temps stayed around 65C even on the maximum level test. Curiously though, the LOAD never went above 52% or so, so my first time using this benchmark tool leads me to believe that Prime95 (which I usually use) is probably better.

I would definitely invest in a cooler though, the Hyper 212+ is an amazing performer, and inexpensive to boot.

Wouldn't you do better asking this question on the OverClocker's Forum ?

IDK ... I would expect you'd get a better/quicker answer, from some O.C.ers.
