Hey everyone,

I've finally completed my first build :) It consists of the Asus P9X79 Deluxe motherboard and i7-3930k processor. For cooling I have the benefits of all the Haf x fans and an XSPC Raystorm RX240 kit. I've just left the CPU under 100% load for about 3 hours and the picture attached shows the readings I achieved.

This is under stock speeds and I'm just wondering if it's ideal or a bit higher than expected. I'm a complete noob so to be honest I have no idea.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Thanks,
Kyle

Looks ok to to me. Try loading the system, and see what that brings up.

Those temps are low. Anything below 70C is fine.

The system was under full load at that...

So how far do you think it could be overclocked? Is it worth overclocking? Will I see much of a performance increase?

Nothing to add to what LH and WHS said (about the temp).

However, here's a friendly tip: holding "alt "while pressing "print screen" will take a screenshot of ONLY the window that has focus - removing any need to edit your screenshot ;)

Actually I have a lil more to add.
If you have a graphic card and want to monitor (and possibly even modify) fans speed, gpu temps, gpu loads and a bunch more info, I suggest MSI Afterburner.
I tried many but this one works great when playing games and I found is the best to make video capture (second to none FPS drop while recording).

That's a different question. Probably best to visit an overclocking site, before you fry things.
