I have a few questions: 1. My idle temps are 19-21C, im wondering what the max should be, ive seen people say they've run there's to 85-90 but online I read 67.4 is the max the CPU should be at. I wondering how hot is too hot. Should I be scared at 40 degrees or 80??
2. Also I have 1 120mm fan in the rear 2 200m fans on top those are all exhaust. I have a 140mm infront, 2 120mm's on the right side, along with a 2omm which are all intake. The CPU fan is facing the hard drive bays but cant tell which way the air I being blown it feels like both directions?? Im wondering if that is a good airflow setup with my fans?
3. Now for overclocking ive gotten t to 4.4 and haven't tried any higher the idle speeds are identical to stock. What stress tests should I do ive heard prime95 is a good one, and how long should I run the tests for?
Thanks, any help would be awesome and very helpful!

Anything past mid 60's under normal load (gaming and such ) I would start worrying. Yes that is fine airflow. Prime 95 is good if it runs for an hour you are good, temps will be higher than normal load.
