Would like a few comments on temperatures on this new build … the temps below are idle temperatures … just using Word … and light browsing … max cpu core and gpu temperatures so far playing Call of Duty Black Ops have been 46 deg C for cpu and same for GTX … with this cpu cooler … does this seem reasonable … no overclocking on anything … haf 922 front and top fans running off molex (full power but quiet) … thanks for comments … John

Your temperatures are nominal, actually excellent. Do not worry.
If, by any chance, your cpu should overheat, it will reduce it's multiplier to protect itself.
Prime95 stresses all threads. Go ahead and run it just to see how hot you can go. Use the rounding checking option. If there are any problems, it will start to show up as rounding errors. Run prime95 long enough for the temperatures to rise to their maximum and stabilize. This is a good test to see if any overclock is stable. While running prime95, have cpu-z active. Check to verify that your multiplier is constantly at the max.
