CPU Temperatures

Hi, Tom's Hardware. I'd like to ask about the overall temperature of my CPU and my cooling. On loads, for example such as running a game at maximum settings my temperature utility is showing this:

System Reference/My build:
- CPU (Processor): Intel i7 950 (Not Overclocked).
- Thermal Solution: Corsair Hydro Series H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler Liquid cooling system.
- Fans: 120mm (4)
- PSU (Power Supply): 1200watt ATX
- Motherboard: EVGA X58 FTW3 (1366)
- GPU (Video Card): EVGA Nvidia GTX 570 (1)
- Case: Corsair 800D Obsidian

I have two questions:

1. Are these temperatures in the above image optimal for my system?
2. Since my motherboard only had 4 fan connectors, and I have 2 extra fans, is there a way I can add more?

P.S. This is my first build.
