    They look absolutely fine for a 920 i7. It's load temps that count really. I find having all fans on full cuts my load temp by a couple of degrees. I suppose it's a combination of a regularly maintained ambient and keeping CPU temp in check right away so that it never has a chance to get too hot at any load.

    Set up your fans how you're going to have them, with BIOS PWM engaged and see how it effects the temp of the CPU (idle and load), GPU (idle and load) and the NB (idle and prime large fft load). Also it may be a good idea to estimate the temp of the RAM at idle and load. To do this you'd need to open the case after a while and after getting rid of static, touching the RAM.

    I agree with Psycho101 that those temperatures look good.

    What is your Ambient Temperature? (The temperature in the room.)

    I agree that Idle temps mean less than Load temps.

    Load temps show the truth!
